Original title Wykrywanie zagrożeń wypadkowych w pracy [in Polish]
Bibliographic information Instytut wydawniczy CRZZ, Warszawa, Poland, 1973. 100p.
Abstract Booklet consisting of 5 articles by different authors on the following topics: methods for detecting the existence of accident hazards, accident prevention at the level of the undertaking, making safety an integral part of work organisation, experience acquired in occupational safety in a metallurgical plant, assessment of possible workplace hazards. The propositions, suggestions and guidelines for studying hazards can be used as a basis for drawing up a planned and controlled safety programme, since no preventive action can be efficacious without prior knowledge of the sources of accidents, their primary causes, and the structure of the accident hazard.
