Abstract
A pre-intervention quantitative risk factor analysis was performed at various shops and locations within Jeffboat LLC, a builder of river barges in Indiana, as a method to identify and quantify risk factors that workers may be exposed to in the course of their normal work duties. Four locations were identified: the rake frame subassembly process, the unloading of angle irons in the steelyard, the honeycomb confined space welding process for double hull barges, and the shear press operation in the plate shop. Possible engineering interventions to address the risk factors associated with these processes are discussed.
