  • To all EFFAT Member Organisations in the Tourism Sector

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the joint OSHA – EFFAT – HOTREC webinar on the Online interactive Risk Assessment (OiRA) tool for the hotel and restaurant sector (please see the agenda attached).

In November 2019, HOTREC and EFFAT launched, under the umbrella of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (OSHA), a free of charge OiRA tool for the European hotel and restaurant sector.

The main objective is to help companies in the hospitality sector to make their own risk assessments and hence comply with OSH regulations, and to encourage national social partners to think about the possibility of developing a sectoral OiRA tool at national level.

The advantages of the tool for the sector are clear:

  • Safety and health at the workplaces are improved
  • Potential hazards and injuries are reduced and eliminated
  • The EU tool can be used for free and serve as an inspiration for interested parties at national level to create a similar tool in conjunction with all interested parties (e.g. governments, social partners, labour inspectorates, etc).

Due to COVID-19, the presentation of the project to all HOTREC and EFFAT members had to be postponed. We consider it is now more than time to share the project with all of you!

Please register in this link until 5 November 2021.

More information about the event can be found here.

We hope to see many of you online!

Best regards,
