Title Accident prevention in SME using ORM
Bibliographic information Oct. 2010, Vol.48, No.8, p.1036-1043. Illus. 11 ref.
Abstract The Dutch workgroup occupational risk model (WORM) was transferred to a Danish context, with the aim of creating a more simple system, particularly for SMEs. The model identifies the daily work activities that contribute most to risks and also identifies which conditions need to be changed in order to reduce these risks. The objective was to determine whether the method could be used to collect information about risks in SMEs and, if so, whether this information could be presented in a way that would allow SMEs to use it constructively. This article describes the methodological approaches applied and some of the preliminary findings obtained during field observations.
