Title Hazard analysis - Theory and practice
Original title Gefńhrdungsanalyse: Theorie - Praxis [in German]
Bibliographic information Schriftenreihe Arbeitssicherheit, Industriegewerkschaft Metall, Nr.16, Wilhelm-Leuschner-Strasse 89, 6 Frankfurt am Main, Germany (Fed.Rep.), Feb. 1975. 48p. Illus. 26 ref.
Abstract A large part of this brochure is devoted to the basic principles in analysing potential hazards of a work system: criteria for direct (by inspection) or indirect (by accident analysis) determination of hazards; hazard analysis within the system; labour statistics; appraisal of success of safety measures and comparison of actual and desired situation; determination of measures to be taken and checking their implementation. Total hazard analysis is considered to be an information medium for a given job and may be used for initiation of newly recruited staff and periodic staff retraining. A practical example of hazard analysis of a welding unit is given in Part 2. The analysis is based on a number of questionnaires: the various stages of the analysis, analyst team, description of work system, assessment of success or failure of safety measures, accident analysis, elements of the system, objectives aimed at and actual achievements, supervision of implementation of safety measures.
