Title A computerized safety management information system for state OSHA inspection and enforcement programs.
Bibliographic information Spring 1980, Vol.12, No.1, p.21-35. Illus. 12 ref.
Abstract Management information systems (MIS) used by states of the USA that administer their own OSH programmes are reviewed, and a model MIS for state occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) programmes is presented. The proposed MIS generates a variety of output reports that should satisfy OSHA monthly and quarterly reporting requirements: aid in evaluating the inspection and compliance programme, and the work of the safety and health inspectors; OSH training for inspectors, employers, and workers; providing information to aid inspectors in preparing future inspections; aiding OSH administrators in planning inspections, using methods and techniques of operations research and management science.
