The EU Sectoral Social Dialogue Partners in the Agricultural Sector embark on a joint project to develop an OiRA tool for the sector.

An OiRA tool to implement proper risk management in the agriculture sector can efficiently support micro and small farms in protecting workers and owners.

The joint tool development planned by both social partners in the sector will have a focus on life stock, horticultural and fruit production. The Employer's Group of COPA - Cogeca and the European Federation for Food, Agriculture and Tourism Trade Unions signed a memorandum with EU-OSHA this month to formalise their common approach.

 

A web-notice is now published on EU-OSHA’s website to encourage possible contractors to declare their interest in an upcoming call for tender for the tool development.

 

Deadline to register interest in the call is 26 June 2020.
