Abstract

A new index-based method for assessing inherent occupational health hazards is presented for the R&D stage. The index results can be viewed in three perspectives; additive-type, average-type, and worst case-type calculations. The method enables the alternative chemical process routes to be ranked based on their health characteristics of the level of occupational health hazards to be determined for a single process. A phenol process case study is given to illustrate the approach.
