Occupational Risk Management on the Basis of Accident Scenarios in the Usage Chain
Purpose: Development of a tool for in-depth analysis of occupational risk, based on the identification of system relationships in the employee-intermediary device-machine chain of use, in order to ultimately achieve the improvement in the occupational safety for technological equipment operators. Approach: Iterative algorithm identifying the task context factors, for the systemic management of occupational risk. Application of card techniques recording the course of activities performed by an employee during a shift, in order to recognize the phenomena accompanying a safety hazard situation within the workplace. Findings: The standardized algorithm of obtaining, processing and sharing the information for task-related conditions, in a systemic approach. The operational information database extended with knowledge of factors, that are crucial for safe operation of a human being in the workplace. Designing the structure of the operational information database and resource control algorithms, in relation to the critical potential. Practical Implications: The presented concept will enable the managers to perform an in-depth analysis of the work system and gain knowledge about the characteristics of the tasks performed, the accompanying threats, and thus to undertake rational improvement actions. Originality/Value: A subjective evaluation of workplace requirements for the operational information database, that can be used in order to optimize the expenditures on the reduction of occupational risk in a given enterprise. Development of professional competences thanks to the cooperation of employees at particular positions during the creative research process perfecting the technical and organizational designs.
