Abstract The practical application of an analysis and evaluation procedure, described in an earlier report (CIS 77-1514), applicable to logistic systems is dealt with. The evaluation criteria and hazard and stress factors affecting man are pinpointed and discussed. On this basis an analysis form and calculation procedure were developed. An underground railway and a high-rise building site were studied as examples, and the transport operations involved are described with drawings and photographs. Results are given for 12 operations in the form of operation profiles and tables, and evaluated. Examples are given of the application of the method to improve occupational safety in the operation and planning phases.
