Roofers

This risk assessment has been produced in order to assist those who have a legitimate need to access and/or work on a roof to do so safely. Roofers' basic work activity is to cover roofs with various roofing materials. Their work varies depending on whether they cover the roof on anew building, which is still under construction, or they replace the roof on an existing building. The main risk to which the roofers are constantly exposed is to fall off the roof. An interactive OiRA tool for roofers comprises a basic description of the risk posed to the roofer. With this and the proposed measures to reduce the risk, the OiRA tool encourages cooperation between employees and employers. The OiRA tool for roofers brings the description and identification of the general risks involved in carrying loads, working at heights, on job sites documents for work and so on. Additional modules are about working at heights and roof treatment while working at height, roof work, work on the roof with a slopes greater than 60° and the roofs with the non-load bearing roof structures.

Shop workers

Due to a long-term standing work or incorrect sitting position, shop workers are often exposed to orthopedic injuries after only a few years of their professional practice. In the long term their health might be affected by repetitive movements influenced by stacking items on the shelves and lifting heavy weights. Improper working techniques and a poor ergonomically designed working environment are among the factors that aggravate the already burdened occupations. The ongoing work with customers and psychosocial risks (excessive workload, shift work, poor communication, sexual harassment, violence, third parties adn so on) can often lead to employees' burnout or depression. The OiRA tool for shop workers deals with general and specific risks at work. This risk assessment contains proposed solutionsto reduce or eliminate the risks. All requirements, listed in the OiRA tool, are linked to legislation.
