Building safer workplaces for construction workers with OiRA
Builders, painters, roofers, carpenters, tilers, plumbers, scaffolders, electricians and other construction workers are exposed to a number of occupational risks, such as manual handling of loads, awkward positions, working in confined spaces, dealing with difficult customers and many more.
To ensure safe workplaces for them, it is crucial that risk assessments are carried out by their employers to tackle the hazards workers face on a day-to-day basis.
23 Online interactive Risk Assessment (OiRA) tools in different languages have been already published by the OiRA national partners to help micro and small companies in the sector ensure safe and healthy working conditions and more are under development.
