Manufacturing of ready-mixed concrete

The tool can be used by any manufacturer of ready-mixed concrete and concrete and lime stone solutions. It is applicable both to mobile and stationary installations. The major organizational requirements related to health and safety are covered as well as major risks related to the site, production process, maintenance and repair of equipment, use of vehicles, presence of visitors and their safety, the management of psycho-social factors and working hours as key conditions for ensuring the health and safety of workers and the visitors of the production site. Measures for emergency planning are extensively reviewed, as well as measures for prevention and reaction in case of fire and disasters.

Construction (work indoors)

This tool is intended for companies which perform construction works indoors. This sector is characterised by multiple risk factors, including work at height, hand injuries, different types of dusts, various harmful effects of chemical substances, noise, work in awkward postures and heavy object lifting and moving. It starts with the identification of hazards and it assesses the level of risk, allowing end-users to choose the most suitable preventive actions to eliminate or reduce the risk(s). The tool also includes tips on ergonomics, work equipment and personal protective equipment. These allow employees to protect themselves from accidents resulting from falls from heights and, at the same level, to reduce the load for the back and joints, as well as to introduce the main principles of fire protection and so on. This tool is an easy way to improve working conditions for workers in the construction sector and its use can contribute to keep them healthy, motivated and with good work ability.

Construction

OiRA Construction has been developed for and by the construction sector. The tool is adapted to the specific characteristics of the sector, such as site work, subcontracting, the diversity of profiles of workers and activities, and special requirements in terms of security coordination. These risks are related to work done at height, exposure to noise, vibration and dust, the manual handling of loads and the use of hazardous products. OiRA Wood is the result of an intensive collaboration between FPS Employment, Labour and Social Dialogue, Constructiv, the FGTB, the CGSLB, CCS, Bouwunie the Construction Confederation and FEMA.

Construction

From the occupational safety and health perspective, working in the construction industry is among the most risky. The reasons are mainly based on the fact that the work is performed at the work environment where the situation is constantly evolving in terms of both the performance of work activities, the number of participants, work at different levels (at height, excavations, tunnels), transport (horizontal, vertical) as well as in very changing weather conditions (heat, cold, wind, rain, snow). During construction work, workers are exposed to health damage risks, such as diseases related to asbestos exposure, back pain, vibration disease (white finger syndrome), and skin ulcers due to the use of hazardous substances like cement. The OiRA tool for construction workers deals with general risks with an emphasis on chemical safety and the safety of work equipment, slipping, tripping, falls from heights, exposure to dangerous substances, the risk of electrical current, manual handling of loads, stress, violence and so on. This risk assessment contains proposed solutions to reduce or eliminate the risks. All requirements, listed in the OiRA tool, are linked to legislation.
