Abstract
Risk assessment continues to be an important process for collecting and describing the evidence regarding the potential of exposure to a particular hazard to induce adverse responses. Workers often experience much higher exposures to hazards than the general population and thus are worthy of special attention. Injuries in the workplace are frequent and result in great impact to the lives of the workers affected. In addition, workplace injuries also impose high economic costs on industries with high exposures to hazards. During 1980 to 1997, there were an average of 16 work-related deaths per day.
