To build a good management system for work safety and health, appropriate weighing index should be taken to measure the management of safety and health for the good of continual improvement in the occupational accident. This study aimed to investigate the difference in the weighting factors for safety and health indices assigned by experts and field industrial hygienists, repectively. This study also took a case company to explore the feasibility of these weighing factors for industrial safety and health performance indices used in Taiwan.hrough liferatual review of the relevant domestic and overseas resources, a self-administered questionnaire was developed. After consulting with thirty-three experts, the preliminary weighing factors for the safety and health performance indices in the questionnaire were obtained. The structured questionnaire was admimstered to 606 industrial safety professor and 32 directors of a case company and to evaluate the safety and health performance at their own workplaces. or the indices of occupational accident, the importance and feasibility of injury severity was the highest. For the work-loss incident indices, the importance of total loss days was the highest, and the disabling loss days was the highest in feasibility. For the indices of work safety and health, phyical examination was of the hightest importance and feasibility. For the indices of safety and health management, weather the policy of safety and health having been widely disseminated advocated was of the highest importance, and how many times of protest from adjacent residents were rank the highest in feasibility. In the indices for safety operation, the time interval of audit was of the highest importance, and the whether a safety and health mamager being assigned was the highest in feasibility.he resulted weighing factors for ten performance indices for safety and health were as follows: 10 for policy and vision of safety and health, 10 for object setting for safety and health, 7 for customers and neighborhood satisfaction, 9 for the management review, 10 for risk assessment and accident prevention measures, 11 for review audit and performance evaluation, 11 for safety and health organization, training and mentoring, 10 for emergency response and event handing, 12 for operational control for safety and health, 10 for job safety and health operation.ccording to the survey of “Study on Occupational Safety and Health Performance Index in Taiwan”, “Weighing Factors for Occupational Safety and Health Performance Indices in Taiwan” was developed and demonstrated practicable in field safety and health performance assessment in the case company pilot study.
