Bibliographic information Nov. 1991, Vol.14, No.3-4, p.253-259. 6 ref.
Abstract The International Safety Rating System (ISRS), also known as the "Five Star" programme, is a safety audit programme designed to be used by managers of industrial sites. Secondary analysis was performed on 3 sets of data that were originally collected to assess the effectiveness of the ISRS. The analyses, which were based on South African and Australian mining experience and North American industrial experience, showed that the ISRS programme has no discernible effect on accident rates.
