Bibliographic information Sep. 2003, Vol.32, No.3, p.165-180. Illus. 37 ref.
Abstract Literature review of methods for the identification and analysis of the risk of occupational accidents in the food industry. Twenty-one methods are reviewed. The methods are described together with a short description of procedures, area of the analysis and relevance to the food industry. A methodological framework was developed distinguishing three different approaches of risk analysis based on scope and type of available input data. The different approaches were termed "biased reactive", "biased proactive" and "unbiased proactive". This framework will enable practitioners to select specific methods of risk analysis depending on prerequisites and context.
