||An occupational safety risk analysis method at construction sites using fuzzy sets
||2009, Vol.39, p.371-387. Illus. 35 ref.
||This article proposes a method for assessment of the risks that workers are exposed to at construction sites, using a fuzzy rule-based safety analysis to deal with uncertain and insufficient data. Using this approach, historical accident data, subjective judgements of experts and the current safety level of a construction site can be combined. Based on the detailed analysis of 5239 construction accidents in Turkey and the subjective judgement of safety experts, three parameters were derived, namely the accident likelihood, current safety level and accident severity. These were used as input parameters for the fuzzy rule-based system. The method was then tested on a tunnelling construction site.
