Latvia develops new OiRA tool for the indoors construction sector
The State Labour Inspectorate of the Republic of Latvia has developed an OiRA tool for the indoors construction sector to help companies identify and assess the risks in order to carry out preventive actions to eliminate or reduce them.
The ‘construction (work in doors)’ tool aims to inform workers about the risks to which they are exposed in the performance of their tasks and how to prevent them. It also includes tips on ergonomics, work equipment and personal protective equipment. The construction 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.
