Abstract

The shipbuilding sector has significant risks in terms of occupational health and safety due to its complex structure, working at height and the use of hazardous chemicals. Since the risk analysis methods in our country are generally based on expert opinions, different results may arise on the same subject. Therefore, a realistic and consistent risk analysis method is needed for shipyards. In this study, a multi - criteria decision making method has been established by using shipyards in occupational health and safety risk analysis. Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) coefficients were inclueded in the L-Type (5x5) Risk Assessment Matrix (RADM. As a result of this study, a realistic method has been developed for the risk analysis of shipyards which will reveal the risk of each existing danger and the overall risk level. Thus, sorting and ranking between shipyards was made possible.
