From warehouse to the high road – OiRA helps assess work-related risks



Road transportation workers are at increased risk of road accidents due to lengthy driving periods, especially at night, sometimes under bad weather and road conditions. Truck drivers, for example, may get injured while doing field repairs, changing tires, climbing and descending from a high truck. They may suffer from back, legs, arms and hands pains, caused by uncomfortable seating for long time.

To protect these workers, ten Online interactive Risk Assessment (OiRA) tools have been designed for the road transport sector. The tools make it easy to identify and manage safety and health hazards in road transport (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Finland, France, Latvia, Portugal and Slovenia), and in warehousing and support activities for transportation (Bulgaria).
