||The application of a job-exposure matrix in the natural gas industry
||Nov.-Dec. 2003, Vol.64, No.6, p.806-814. 20 ref.
||This article describes the use of a job exposure matrix for the design, implementation and analysis of a questionnaire to profile jobs in natural gas pipeline operations with respect to possible hazardous exposures. The categories of chemical, physical, ergonomic, biological, and psychological hazards were surveyed. The first stage of the project was to formulate and confirm a list of hazardous agents present within the pipeline operations. The second stage involved the collection of data about whether a particular hazardous agent was present at a location, and if so, which workers were exposed to it, and at what intensity and frequency they were exposed. The final stage of the project was to critically examine and validate the data collected. Uses of the resulting database are discussed.
