Abstract This information note describes a method for the evaluation of hazards as perceived by workers. After a discussion of the theoretical and methodological aspects, it goes on to describe a procedure for the dimensional evaluation of hazards as perceived by workers. The evaluation is carried out by means of a questionnaire concerning various risk factors, which workers quantify on a scale from 1 to 7. A three-dimensional data structure is obtained from which various analyses can be carried out, in particular the characteristic profile for each of the hazards evaluated.
