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.

Cleaning

Cleaning is a job to be implemented in all industries and in public places and business premises. In general, it means cleaning floors and other surfaces, including washing floors, dusting, vacuuming, polishing floors and work surfaces as well as other tasks, such as removing trash, waste water disposal and similar. Frequently, cleaning tasks take place outside regular working hours, including in the early morning, late evening or at night. Some cleaning operations are specialised only for cleaning windows, facades, industrial plants, means of transport (trains, planes, buses, etc), premises and equipment in health care and cleansing effects of disasters such as fires, floods and the like. Bsides, cleaning, slipping, stumbling, falls and similar are the most common causes of accidents at work. Workers are exposed to dangerous substances, the risk of electrical currents, manual handling of loads, stress, as well as violence by third parties and sexual harassment.

Shops

Due to a long-term standing work or incorrect sitting position, shop workers are often exposed to orthopedic injuries after only a few years of their professional practice. 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.
