Safeguarding waste management workers with OiRA

Waste management is essential for healthy cities, but people working in this sector experience multiple occupational risks. From exposure to chemical substances and biological agents to facing vibrations, noise and mechanical hazards. Working in the sector  is considered a high-risk activity.

EU-OSHA and its OiRA partners assist businesses in assessing occupational safety and health hazards through the Online interactive Risk Assessment (OiRA) tools.

Published by the national OiRA partners from Bulgaria, France and Lithuania, and another one currently being under development for Greece, OiRA tools can be waste management companies’ best ally to achieve safer workplaces.
