A new OiRA tool for the live performance sector


Occupational safety in the performing arts is characterised by many challenges. This OiRA tool for live performance sector supports small and micro-sized enterprises in the sector in assessing and managing their occupational risks.

This tool was created as a part of a research project called 'Floor is Yours! Improving safety management and safety culture in the performing arts’.

The research was carried out by the national OiRA partner, the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health in co-operation with national social partners and supported by the Finnish Work Environment Fund. The aim of the project was to generate information on the current state of OSH in performing arts (e.g. theatre, music, opera, dance, circus) in Finland. Based on the information gathered on workplaces’ safety management and safety culture, tools and methods were developed to help practical operators to improve the safety management and culture in the field. While the focus of the project was on small and micro-sized enterprises, the tool is also suitable for bigger companies.
