COVID-19

In 2020 during the onsets of the pandemic EU-OSHA has developed this tailored tool to support safe working conditions under COVID-19 restrictions. In 2021 this revised version has been published, now covering a broader range of activities and including more information on testing and vaccination.

The interactive tool can help in identifying, assessing and managing the risks posed by COVID-19 and ensuring that workers come back to a safe and healthy environment. It includes information on how to handle crucial aspects like physical distancing and hygenic measures. It further covers a range of situations, including what to do if a worker has COVID-19 symptoms, travelling to and from work safely and managing external service providers.

Employees, crews, performers and all other staff involved in audiovisual productions are constantly exposed to risks that can lead to injuries and other health repercussions.

This tool is intended to anyone who aims to assess the health and safety risks related to audiovisual productions such as feature films, short films, documentaries, television series, commercials, video clips, video art, virtual reality and so on.

The EU OiRA tool is the result of the project titled “Developing an Online Interactive Risk Assessment tool for film and TV productions” and was developed in a cooperation between the European Social partners of the sector, the European Coordination of Independent Producers (CEPI), the International Federation of Actors (FIA), the International Federation of Film Producers Associations (FIAPF), the International Federation of Musicians (FIM) and UNI Europa - media, entertainment & arts and with the support of EU-OSHA.

Education – early childhood

The social partners at European level ETUCE and EFEE, in close cooperation with EU-OSHA, have developed this tools to help institutions offering early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) to assess occupational safety and health (OSH) risks and take preventive and effective action, not only for teachers but for all staff concerned!

The elaboration of these tools was introduced in 2016 in a Joint Declaration from both partners: Preventing and Combating Psychosocial Hazards in the Education Sector.

Risks in the education sector are multifaceted and the tools include a great number of prevention measures - for psychosocial risks, risks of slips, trips and falls, risks stemming from a lack of building maintenance, and many more.

Hotels and restaurants

The HORECA sector (hotel, restaurant, café) encompasses a wide variety of workplaces and workers from this sector are exposed to a series of occupational hazards. The most important risks relate among others to slips and trips, burns, hazardous substances and stress.Occupational safety and health (OSH) management is essential not only to create healthy workplaces but also to reduce costs and other negative consequences of work related accidents and sick leaves. Risk assessment is the cornerstone of OSH management and helps employers to identify the risks and take appropriate measures.

Therefore, the Social Partners of the European HORECA sector, EFFAT (European Federation of Food, Agriculture and Tourism Trade Unions) and Hotrec (Association of Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs and Cafes) have developed together an OiRA tool to support small and medium sized companies in the proper management of occupational health and safety risks.

The tool has been developed at EU level and serves as a basis when developing an OiRA HORECA tool at national level. Useful information on how the EU directives have been transposed into all national legislations can be found on the website of EU-OSHA.

Leather and tanning

The processes and activities in the leather and tanning industry can expose workers to occupational hazards. The most important risks are related to the use of machinery and other equipment, chemicals, and the work environment. Occupational safety and health (OSH) management is essential not only to create healthy workplaces but also to reduce costs and other negative consequences of work related accidents and sick leaves

Therefore the Social Partners of the European Leather Industry, industriAll-Europe and COTANCE have developed an OiRA tool to support small and medium sized companies in the proper management of occupational health and safety risks. The tool helps companies to carry out a risk assessment and take adequate measures to eliminate and minimise health and safety risks. Furthermore, the self-assessment reports based on this OiRA tool can be used as an instrument in the supply chain for communicating on OSH. Implementation of the tool does not however ensure legal compliance with the respective national health and safety regulations. The tool has been developed at EU level and may serve as a basis when developing an OiRA leather and tanning tool at national level.

Cleaning

This tool deals with general office cleaning. Office cleaning is performed in different work environments in various kinds of buildings. Therefore the types of risks to which cleaning workers are exposed are also specific to the premises they work in. Should the risk assessment be carried out in offices located in specific premises like laboratories, hospitals, etc. additional risks would need to be considered (for instance exposure to biological risks, radiations, etc.).
This tool has been developed at EU level and may serve as a basis when developing an OiRA cleaning tool at national level. This implies that specific changes are needed for national adaptions (e.g. national legislation). The solutions the tool offers are meant to be understood as suggestions.

Private Security

Private security guards are involved in preventing all types of risks and in serving the security of people, premises, processes, and goods. At the same time they are exposed to many risks, such as slips, trips and falls and violence of all types to only name the most frequent ones.
The tool covers five different areas: commercial manned guarding, mobile patroling, event security, airport security and maritime security. The tool is highly adaptable and gives the choice to companies to repeat each of these areas for every single location/event where private security has been contracted. The tool has been developed by the EU social partners and needs to be adapted at country level to ensure that it includes the respective legislative information on national level.
