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).
