OiRA hairdressers video

Hairdressers face a variety of risks such as musculoskeletal issues linked to working postures and skin problems due to wet work and dealing with cosmetics. Together with coiffure and UniEuropa , the social partners in Europe's hairdressing sector, EU-OSHA has produced a video showing how to reduce occupational safety and health risks with the help of OiRA. The video complements the infographic on risk assessment with OiRA . The video is available with subtitles in the languages of the countries where an OiRA hairdressers tool already exists.

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.

The content of the tool is based on European legislation and particularly on the provisions of the European framework agreement on the protection of occupational health and safety in the hairdressing sector. This tool has been developed at EU level and may serve as a basis when developing an OiRA hairdressers tool at national level. This implies that specific changes will be needed for national adaptions. The solutions the tool offers are meant to be understood as suggestions.

Sport sector - active leisure

The active leisure sector comprises two sub-sectors - fitness and outdoors, and they are part of the broader sport sector. The fitness sector uses qualified instructors and trainers to deliver diverse, structured exercise programmes that help people of all ages and abilities to improve their health, muscle and cardiovascular endurance, coordination, balance, agility and flexibility. Fitness programmes also build a feeling of individual wellbeing that establishes and helps to maintain a healthy balance of mind, body and spirit. The outdoor sector uses outdoor related activities (mountain biking, canoe, rafting, horse riding, … etc.) as the basis of delivery of a recreational or personal development service. Outdoor providers do not generally offer competitions, which are therefore not included in the tool. The outdoor sector uses qualified instructors to deliver outdoor activities in a context of fun, recreation, tourism, outdoor learning or engagement with the natural environment. The tool does not cover high risk activities such as climbing, diving, surfing etc. since these were considered to be very specific and as such, need to go along with very specific health and safety measure, that couldn't be covered within the current approach. Aspects such as work performed outside normal working hours, part-time or temporary contracts, or volunteer work as well as free lancer work are included in the tool.

All the above workers can also be volunteers. Any sports club or person that represents a sports club is considered to be an 'employer'.
