Title Certification of safety services in large Dutch industrial companies
Bibliographic information May 1991, Vol.14, No.1, p.43-59. 45 ref.
Abstract Study carried out for the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs in order to help develop criteria for the evaluation of safety services under Dutch legislation. The criteria were developed from a combination of theoretical considerations and systematic expert opinion. The evaluation instrument is based on consideration of the safety system of a company as a problem solving and monitoring system in which the safety service plays a stimulating, advising and monitoring role. Criteria for assessing this role based on a description submitted by the company and by on-site visits are described. The paper reports a pilot study of the instrument in 5 companies.
