Risk assessment using OiRA at French workplaces: a qualitative studyKeywords:
Risk assessment is the basis for occupational safety and health, and the key to proper risk assessment is choosing an approach that is standardised and easy to use. Just ask the French!
France is home to one third of all small and micro companies currently using EU-OSHA’s Online interactive Risk Assessment (OiRA) tool. Before trying the platform, they did not use any systematic risk assessment system or they relied on paper-based tools.
From the study of 40 companies in France, the report presents a set of recommendations on how to best approach and support companies for better use of OiRA.
