A Self-Evaluation Instrument for the Phosphate Fertilizer Industry, (SEI-PFI) was developed to aid employers and employees within the industry in recognizing actual or potential occupational hazards. Questions concerning controls and work practices for each operation or procedure in the industry were devised, and brief evaluation of the potential hazards in each area were included. The questionnaire was designed to be completed by trained and responsible personnel during walk through field surveys. The authors recommend that the companion document, Self Evaluation of Occupational Safety and Health Programs, be used in conjunction with SEI-PFI to aid in implementing a comprehensive occupational safety and health program.
