Bibliographic information 2009, Vol.15, No.4, p.373-384. Illus. 41 ref.

Abstract The objective of this study is to develop a simple tool for risk identification and assessment in small enterprises by facilitating the incorporation of insights from accident, human error and risk perception models. It presents an approach that involves the grouping and classification of risk factors according to certain criteria, to fit the proper set of models to each situation. To further facilitate the process, the main guidelines of each model are presented. This simplified approach should help safety engineers in selecting the proper model for the workplace to better assess its risks.
