||The objective of this study was to quantify occupational risks in an aluminium plant located in Northern Greece. Risk assessment was based on the Workgroup Occupational Risk Model (WORM), which can assess occupational risks at hazard level, activity level, job level and overall company level. Twenty six job positions were identified for this plant. All risk profiles of workers were quantified and jobs were ranked according to their risk. Operators at the entrance of the painting unit have the highest fatality risk, followed by the workers at the storage area and the workers performing sandblasting. Occupational risks were also assessed for all plant units and the overall company. Findings are discussed.
