Original title Factores, indicadores y marcadores de riesgo en prevención laboral [in Spanish]
Bibliographic information 1st Quarter 2000, Vol.20, No.77, p.31-45. Illus.
Abstract A methodology for risk assessment based on risk factors, markers and indicators including risk identification, evaluation and control is presented. It is applicable to all technical fields. Risk factors are determined by the type of work and working conditions. Risk indicators are parameters of the accident susceptibility and risk markers are objective elements to estimate risk factors derived from practical working situations. Five examples of risk assessment and control measures are given (hazards: silicosis, traffic accidents, efforts when handling loads, postural overstrain, occupational stress).
