Tyre repair workers

This risk assessment has been produced in order to assist tyre repair workers to do their job safely. One of the primary tasks of the tyre repair workers are to prepare the car for safe driving, including tyre repairs, montages and changing the tubes and tires, as well as balancing wheels. Work tasks contain a selection of tasks, from tire-wheel assembly and disassembly to tire balancing, as well as repair of damaged tires and rims. Workers are exposed to sudden tire cracks or explosions, carrying heavy loads and so on. An interactive OiRA tool intended for tyre repair workers which comprises a basic description of the tyre repair shops, encourages cooperation between employees and employers and significantly contributes to improvements in the workplace and working environment.

Wholesale and retail sales of non-food products

Wholesale and retail sales of non-food products is a complex economic activity because a variety of lifting equipment for heavy loads is used in this sector and so on. This OiRA is developed specifically for those companies which carry out both wholesale trade in warehouses and retail sales in sales markets. It is obvious that the retail trade is a less dangerous activity, because lifting equipment are less frequently used. However, the manual handling of loads is classified as hazardous work and may affect the health of workers and the various spinal diseases because of the lifting heavy loads.

Woodworking

During the development of the Belgian tool OiRA Wood, the potential risks associated with the timber industry have been put under the microscope and have shown that companies and their workers need to be more attentive to the risks they incur. These risks are for example related to exposure to noise and dust (wood), and the use of hazardous products. OiRA Wood is the result of intensive collaboration between FPS Employment, Labour and Social Dialogue, the CSC, the CTIB (the Technical Centre for Wood Industry), the FBCIB (Belgian Federation of Timber Import Trade), Fedustria (Belgian Federation of the textile industry, wood and furniture), the FGTB, the NSF (National Federation of sawmills), the United Hout, Prevent (technical support), the UNEBO (National Union of Enterprises of Wood).
