Construction

The building construction sector which is mainly made up of micro and small companies registers high levels of work accidents. This sector is characterized by several risk factors, such as working at heights, moving loads, handling machinery and work equipment, the presence of dust and other hazardous chemicals, improper posture, noise and vibration, as well as adverse weather conditions. Accidents usually occur due to unsafe conditions and / or actions. This tool aims to contribute to an improvement of working conditions in the building construction sector, as it allows for an assessment of existing risks and suggests measures to be implemented to control these risks and produces an action plan to be implemented at the workplace.

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.

Construction - indoor work

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 (earth works)

This tool is intended for companies which perform construction work on the earth level and ground works. Construction in general is a sector characterised by multiple risk factors, including work in excavations, eye and hand injuries, different types of dusts, noise, vibration, 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 safety requirements for excavations, 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 (outdoor work)

This tool is intended for companies that perform construction work outdoors (e.g. work on roof, insultation works, decoration and restoration of facades). Construction in general is a sector characterised by multiple risk factors, including falling of workers and objects, exposure to dust and fibres, noise, vibration, weather conditions unsuitable for work, 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 safety requirements for scaffolding and personal protective equipment for fall prevention, tips on ergonomics, protection of respiratory system and safe use of work 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.

Cooks

This risk assessment has been produced in order to assist cooks to do their job safely. Cooks and chefs spend most of the day on their feet, and it is often necessary to lift and carry heavy bags or boxes of ingredients. The commercial kitchen is full of sharp blades and dangerously hot surfaces, so both cuts and burns are commonplace. During a busy shift the floors can become slippery from grease or moisture, creating a slipping hazard. Many of the powerful cleansers, grease cutters and sanitizers used in the industry are toxic and corrosive, presenting health risks of their own when used incorrectly. The cooks are exposed to a wide range of threats such as mechanical hazards (cutting and needle stick injuries), burns, threats of electrocution, etc.  An interactive OiRA tool intended for cooks which comprises a basic description of  kitchens, encourages cooperation between employees and employers and significantly contributes to improvements in the workplace and working environment.
