Did you know that woodworking and related activities have some of the highest accident rates in the manufacturing industry? Six Online interactive Risk Assessment (OiRA) tools tailored to this sector highlight the risks associated with working with a range of tools and equipment –– sometimes at height and in awkward positions –– and exposure to excessive noise, dust and fumes.
The tools developed by national partners in Belgium (in French and Dutch), Czechia, Latvia, Lithuania and Slovenia cover chemical safety, personal protective equipment, ergonomics and much more. A further tool in Greek is currently under development.
Let’s reduce woodworking accidents and help everyone employed in the sector stay safe, healthy and motivated.
