New tools for risk assessment in the sport sector

Monday 23 May 2016

The social partners of the sports sector, UNI Europa and EASE, have developed three new tools for comprehensive risk evaluation, with the support from the European Agency for Health and Safety at Work, EU-OSHA.

The sports sector accounts for a very high rate of work-related accidents. Comprehensive risk evaluation is the first step forward to proper risk management and employee protection.

The three tools respond to the great variety of activities in the sector: active leisure, not for profit and professional sports. Social partners as well as OiRA partners at national level are invited to adapt these EU sports tools to their own needs and context.

Amel Djemail, UNI Europa Sport, said: ‘Athletes & employees from the sport sector are workers too! Healthy and safe workplaces are not a luxury but a MUST.’
