Bilbao, Spain – A free risk assessment tool for small businesses is available online from the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, also known as EU-OSHA.

The Online interactive Risk Assessment project, announced June 13, provides resources designed to help small businesses assess risks. The system guides users through the entire risk assessment process: identification of workplaces risks, implementing preventive actions, and monitoring and reporting risks.

OiRA is intended to help small businesses become more competitive by cutting costs associated with occupational illnesses and improving working conditions, EU-OSHA stated.
