Occupational Risk Assessment (ORA)
The Occupational Risk Assessment (ORA) constitutes a fundamental employer’s duty (Law 3850/2010, Article 43) for all companies in the private or public sector, regardless of the number of employees and the sector of economic activity. ORA is, also, one of the most essential tools for optimal management for the prevention of work accidents, occupational diseases and for the promotion of wellbeing at work.
