Simultaneous Assessment of Health Risks of Occupational and Living Factors: Probabilistic Modeling.
Proceedings of Symposium on Health Risk Assessment on Environmental, Occupational and Life Style Hazards, December 20-22, 1988; Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Taiwan, Republic of China 1991 Apr:324-344
The simultaneous assessment of health risks of occupational and life style hazards using probabilistic modeling was considered. Addressed topics included: methods utilized in the occupational health risk assessment process (hazard identification, health risk identification, health risk assessment, and health risk management); a proposed health risk assessment method based on probabilistic mathematical modeling (theoretical model, advantages over nonprobabilistic statistics and health risk scores, disadvantages); methodology (questionnaire design, number of parameters and observations); statistical analysis (dichotomous disease outcome models, polytomous outcome models with or without severity orders, unconditional simple and multiple logistic models from cross sectional studies, and multivariate models); and health risk management. The author recommends use of probabilistic modeling for accurate occupational health risk assessment. Simultaneous assessment of health risks with all potential causes was emphasized.
