Tool of the week

This tool is intended for companies which perform construction works indoors. This sector is characterised by multiple risk factors, including work at height, hand injuries, different types of dusts, various harmful effects of chemical substances, noise, work in awkward postures and heavy object lifting and moving. It starts with the identification of hazards and it assesses the level of risk, allowing end-users to choose the most suitable preventive actions to eliminate or reduce the risk(s). The tool also includes tips on ergonomics, work equipment and personal protective equipment. These allow employees to protect themselves from accidents resulting from falls from heights and, at the same level, to reduce the load for the back and joints, as well as to introduce the main principles of fire protection and so on. This tool is an easy way to improve working conditions for workers in the construction sector and its use can contribute to keep them healthy, motivated and with good work ability.
