The EU social partners from the live performance sector, the European Arts and Entertainment Alliance (EAEA, composed of FIM, FIA and UNI MEI) and Pearle* have released a video on their Online interactive Risk Assessment (OiRA) tools.
The tools are made for assessing health and safety risks in venues and production companies, especially in small ones. Specific risk assessment strategies are vital to prevent accidents and ill-health in the sector.
Workplaces in the live performance sector are challenged by very diverse health and safety risks and the OiRA tools are developed to support small enterprises in better dealing with these challenges. These stem from a broad range of activities, including stage performances, chemical substances used in special effects, the presence of an audience and environmental aspects such as lighting and temperature.
