A computerized safety management information system for state OSHA inspection and enforcement programs.
J Saf Res 1980 Mar; 12(1):21-35
A model management information system (MIS) is described for use with state OSHA programs. The proposed system is designed to satisfy OSHA monthly and quarterly reporting requirements; aid in performance evaluations of inspection and compliance programs and offices; develop training programs for inspectors, employers, and employees; assist in planning future inspections; and aid OSHA administrators in planning inspections using methods and techniques of operations research and management science. The authors conclude that such a system would provide valuable planning and allocation strategies. They recommend careful system design and planning to avoid subsequent costly modifications, or inadequate services as OSHA needs change.
