Secondary Education

The social partners at European level ETUCE and EFEE, in close cooperation with EU-OSHA, have developed this tool to help Secondary Education institutions 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.

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.
