||Inter-rater agreement in the assessment of exposure to carcinogens in the offshore petroleum industry
||Sep. 2007, Vol.64, No.9, p.582-588. 27 ref.
||The objective of this study was to determine the reliability of an expert team assessing exposure to carcinogens in the offshore petroleum industry and to examine how the information provided influenced the agreement among raters. Eight experts individually assessed the likelihood of exposure for combinations of 17 carcinogens, 27 job categories and four time periods based on descriptions of sources of exposure, descriptions of work processes carried out within the different job categories and monitoring data. Inter-rater agreement was calculated using Cohen's kappa index and single and average correlation coefficients. Findings are discussed.
