||Evaluation of hazards for handicapped workers
||Evaluación de riesgos para trabajadores discapacitados [in Spanish]|
||2001, No.16, p.18-26; 35-36. Illus. 6 ref.
||This article presents a method for evaluating the hazards to which handicapped workers are exposed. Various types of risk were coded (from 00 to 23). For each hazard highlighted in the analysis of the conditions of work, the level of risk is evaluated by determining the potential seriousness of the injury and its probability of occurrence. Specific preventive measures depend on risk levels highlighted. Four check-lists for hazard evaluation are included, applicable to persons in wheelchairs, with walking difficulties, with handling difficulties (problems in using arms or hands) and with vision problems.
