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.

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.
