Abstract
Description
Emergency management is a fundamental part of occupational safety and health. Fires are the most common emergencies in the industries of our country and throughout the world. Applying the multi-criteria analysis method, the investigations using the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) in fire risk assessment allowed the identification of fire risk factor. An experts group was consulted about the level of importance of fire risk factors in the fire risk evaluation, for these purpose each expert used the AHP. Results of research can be use to perform the detailed assessment of fire risk, allowing state owners and investors to carry out actions for reduce possible losses in case of fire. Insurance companies can perform the detailed assessment of fire risks on the object and to calculate a risk extra charge to an insurance premium. Fire departments can determine the compliance of a condition of object with requirements of regulations
La gestión de las emergencias hace parte fundamental de la seguridad y salud en el trabajo. Los incendios se constituyen como las emergencias más comunes en las industrias de nuestro país y en todo el mundo. Por medio del proceso de análisis multi atributo, específicamente el proceso de análisis jerárquico (AHP), los factores de riesgo fueron identificados en las investigaciones que se han realizado usando este método de análisis. El nivel de importancia de cada factor fue calculado por medio de un grupo de expertos que aplicaron el proceso de análisis jerárquico. Los resultados de la investigación pueden ser usados para tener una evaluación detallada el riesgo de incendio que permitiría a los inversionistas o propietarios tomar medidas para reducir las posibles pérdidas en caso de incendio; a las compañías de seguro realizar incrementos en las primas de riesgo basados en la evacuación del riesgo; a los departamentos de bomberos el nivel de cumplimiento de los requerimientos normativos.      Emergency management is a fundamental part of occupational safety and health.
