JANACKOVIC, G.L.; SAVIC, S.M. and STANKOVIC, M.S.. Selection and ranking of occupational safety indicators based on fuzzy AHP: A case study in road construction companies. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2013, vol.24, n.3, pp.175-189. ISSN 2224-7890.
This paper presents the factors, performance, and indicators of occupational safety, as well as a method to select and rank occupational safety indicators based on the expert evaluation method and the fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (fuzzy AHP). A case study is done on road construction companies in Serbia. The key safety performance indicators for the road construction industry are identified and ranked according to the results of a survey that included experts who assessed occupational safety risks in these companies. The case study confirmed that organisational factors have a dominant effect on the quality of the occupational health and safety management system in Serbian road construction companies.
