OiRA: an improved version to assess risks during Covid

Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > OiRA: an improved version to assess risks during Covid

A new version of the OiRA tool for Covid-19 risk assessment is now available. It aims to better respond to the needs of different professions and sectors.

The aim is to emphasise the importance of adapting work processes to the Covid-19 measures and to assess the consequences for occupational safety and health. Two new modules have been integrated compared to the original version launched in June 2020. These relate to the risks associated with deliveries and working on customer premises. The new version also takes into account approaches to testing and vaccination.
