Resumen From 1999 to 2003, 64,000 accidents and 100 deaths were determined to be attributable to hazardous machines in Quebec industries. Although the tools and methods for estimating the risks associated with this equipment offer a first-line prevention strategy, a recent study revealed that they come in very different forms. As part of a thematic programme intended to provide a better understanding of the processes for estimating the risks associated with industrial machines, this study explored the theoretical efficiency and limitations of a sample of 31 tools and methods. The results show that the structure of the tools and terminology used in the tools can potentially lead to biased or incorrect risk estimations. Implications are discussed.
