Title Assessment of primary prevention programmes by industrial sector
Original title Il rapporto su un piano di comparto come valutazione di risultato [in Italian]
Bibliographic information Mar.-Apr. 1992, Vol.83, No.2, p.120-126. 11 ref.
Abstract The adoption of codes of recommended practice (CRP) by industrial management, a fundamental step in ensuring a safer and healthier work environment, is a suitable approach for evaluating primary prevention programmes. This hypothesis was tested in the shoe and leather goods manufacturing industry (55 facilities). An ordinal scale was defined for each variable taken into account by CRP and for other variables related to employers' actions. A score was assigned to every facility with reference to the starting and ending points of the programme. Using these scores, an estimation was made of the degree of variation, in time and among facilities, in adopting CRP.
