Maritime transport

Seafaring still belongs to one of the most dangerous occupations worldwide. Risk assessment as a cornerstone in risk management has been widely introduced by internationally operating shipping companies. In contrast, small and micro sized shipping enterprises operating in coastal areas often have no systematic approach to occupational health and safety management. In order to tackle this challenge the “SHIPSAN-ACT – Joint Action” has developed this OiRA tool on maritime transport. The Risk Assessment Tool was structured into ten modules. Based on two general modules dealing with the general approach to safety and health on board (“Occupational Safety and Health Management” and “General Hazards on Board”), six modules cover relevant areas of the ship (“Working on the Bridge”, “Working on the Deck and Cargo Decks”, “Working in the Engine Room”, “Working in the Galley”, “Living Accommodation” and “Working in the ships offices”). Two extra modules were created to treat specific topics (“Dealing with Emergencies” and “Vulnerable Working Groups”). The OiRA tool for Maritime Transport can be used by anyone wishing to assess health and safety-related risks that might exist in their workplace on a ship.

Occupational risk assessment in micro-enterprises - the assets of digital tools

What if micro-enterprises were to take their first step in risk prevention via the internet? This is what several European Union Member States are hoping as they develop online interactive tools to help assess occupational risks. Although such tools have many benefits, their design must follow certain fundamental principles to ensure their effectiveness.

Risk assessment in SMEs - challenges and opportunities

Risk assessment is the start of the health and safety management approach – if not done well or not done at all, the appropriate preventive measures are unlikely to be identified or put in place. It has become a familiar concept for organising prevention at the workplace (since the adoption of the Framework Directive 89/391) and is carried out by hundreds of thousands of companies all over Europe but remains a pending issue for many, many others (especially the smaller ones). In this PDF, the challenges and opportunities for SMEs when it comes to risk assessment are dealt with.
