Bibliographic information Oct. 1985, Vol.42, No.10, p.656-666. Illus. 30 ref.
Abstract Report on the development of a simple, standardised method for the investigation of work load and occupational hazards. The method involves several stages of information gathering, a rating scale for a preliminary job hazard analysis and a detailed analytical procedure. Special comments are made on conclusions, proposals, follow-up, reliability of job-related data and validity. The appendices include a checklist for information already available, a form for preliminary job hazard analysis and a form for a description and assessment of job load and hazard analysis.
