Development of A Control Technology Assessment Industry Priority- Setting Technique.
NIOSH 1976 Sep:44 pages
The development of a technique which can be used to categorize and select industries for the NIOSH Control Technology Assessment effort is discussed. The development of a technique utilizing data from government and business publications is described. The two methodologies that could be employed to modify an initial industry classification and priority based on government and business publications are described. A statistical method for selecting facilities within a survey industry, including assumed inferential and sample design requirements, sample design, sample selection of facilities, within facility sampling and variance model, and sample size is discussed. The authors conclude that industries can be prioritized on the basis of hazard for the purpose of control technology assessment and that facilities can be selected for control technology assessment within strict probability frameworks with clear inferential ability at industry wide levels.
