New OSH project by social partners in Finland on the OiRA EU live performance tool
The ‘Floor is Yours!’ research project is a new joint health and safety initiative, which will be carried out by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (FIOH) and sectoral social partners at the national level. Based on the OiRA tool for the EU live performance sector, the project will look into the OSH management and culture within the performing arts industry in Finland.
Floor is Yours! is also a direct outcome of the added value of the OiRA EU live performace tool as it arouse from previous OSH discussions among sectoral social partners in Finland.
The project aims to develop OSH management and risk assessment tools in collaboration with an expert working group, as well as to support the in-house cultural change for the sector. In order to achieve this, research materials will be gathered by surveys, interviews and group discussions and the collected information will be implemented through thematic workshops and material databases.
The project’s outcomes are also expected to include publications, a research report and peer-reviewed articles, which are foreseen by 2020. These resources would be addressed at professionals and organisations within the performing arts sector. The initiative will be jointly funded by FIOH and the social partners.
