New OiRA tool supports COVID-19 workplace risk assessment
As COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease across Europe, many companies and organisations are planning how to return safely to the workplace. EU-OSHA’s Online interactive Risk Assessment platform – OiRA - has developed a tailored tool to support this process.
The interactive tool can help identify, assess and manage the risks posed by COVID-19 to ensure that workers come back to a safe and healthy environment. It covers a range of situations, including what to do if a worker has COVID-19 symptoms, how to guarantee physical distancing at the workplace and managing external service providers.
The COVID-19 OiRA tool is available for national OiRA partners for adaptation to their national regulation and situations. Some activity sectors will have to complement these OiRA recommendations with more tailored requirements.
