Taxonomia e estrutura dos procedimentos de análise de riscos ocupacionais [Taxonomy and structure of occupational risk analysis proceedures]
This article presents taxonomy and a framework for occupational risk assessment procedures (named as Matrix Hazards-Risks-Disorders). A classification of hazards/risks, with identification of potential consequences in terms of accidents, occupational diseases and discomfort is presented in the Matrix for Identification of Hazards-Risks-Disorders. For each hazard/risk, potential individual disorders are identified as a result of accidents (injuries), occupational diseases and occupational discomfort. For the characterization of individual disorders, the classifications expressed by ESAW (European Statistics on accidents at work) and by the Regulatory Decree 76/2007 are used. Each disorder is associated to the anatomical region potentially affected. The valuation of the risk is organized in terms of risks for accidents - occupational diseases – and occupational discomfort. For each hazard / risk, control measures are identified, according to the hierarchy expressed at NP 4397:2008 (amended). The implementation of control measures was associated with a time criterion of short-medium-long term that took into account the timing of implementation and the groups of measures to be implemented jointly. The methodology was applied to a manufacturing company of concrete products for construction. This methodology, named as Matrix Hazards-Risks-Disorders has the objective to add value to the current procedures to analysis and evaluation of occupational risks.
