Hairdressing

In most hairdressing salons, everything is geared around the client. Sometimes hairdressers disregard their own health, leading to health problems such as hairdresser eczema or wrist, neck and shoulder complaints. This often forces them, even while still very young, to abandon the profession. "OiRA peluquerías" has been developed taking as an example "OiRA Hairdressers" tool, which has been developed under the supervision of the social dialogue partners: Coiffure EU (employers) and UNI Europa Hair and Beauty (trade unions). The content is based on European legislation and particularly on the provisions of the European framework agreement on the protection of occupational health and safety in the hairdressing sector.

Private security

Work in the private security sector goes along with plenty of risks, such as slips, trips and falls and violence of all types lead to private security guards being victims of work-related accidents or reporting temporarily inactive for certain periods of time. This is not a favourable situation for private security guards, private security companies and customers. Private security guards are involved in preventing all types of risks and in serving the security of people, premises, processes and goods. Hence, necessary measures must be taken to guarantee their own health and safety. This OiRA tool has been developed based on the tool developed by the EU sectorial social partners (CoESS and UNI Europa).

Leather and tanning

Tanneries have important risks that must be controlled to ensure the protection of workers. These risks are of various types such as: the use of heavy machinery, the use of manual cutting tools or chemicals during tanning and bleaching. Workers often have to manually manipulate skins and hides and the workplace and storage area is often wet. The European social partners in the field of leather and tanning, IndustriAll and COTANCE, developed this tool that has been adapted to Catalan, as support for small and medium companies.
