Abstract This manual presents a method for compiling a register for each of the 4 most important factors of the workplace environment - noise, lighting, climate and dangerous substances. The registers are primarily designed for safety officers and institutions responsible for occupational safety and health. Each of the four manuals can be used separately. Their practical application is demonstrated by 3 studies - bottling, weaving mill and moulding.
