Title Continuous improvement in the prevention of occupational hazards
Original title La mejora continua en prevención de riesgos laborales [in Spanish]
Bibliographic information Apr.-June 2009, No.188, p.6-12. Illus.
Abstract This article explains how a continuous improvement system based on the Deming cycle (or PDCA; plan, do, check, act) can be applied to the occupational safety and health plan of the enterprise as well as to each of its work procedures or instructions, including the hazard evaluation. A continuous improvement system to correct unsafe acts can help in changing behaviours by means of internal safety inspections coupled to workers' training.
