The Occupational Risk Model (ORM) developed by the Dutch Workgroup Occupational Risk Model WORM has been transferred to a Danish context, with the aim of creating a more simple system particularly for SMEs. The ORM identifies the activities in a person’s daily work that contribute most to the person’s risk and also identifies what conditions need to be changed in order to reduce that risk. Our investigation seeks to determine whether we can use the ORM method to collect information about the risks in SMEs and whether we can present this information in a way that allows the SMEs to use it constructively. Finally we seek to evaluate the impact of this method on occupational safety in SMEs, as the project also focuses on management factors that can motivate the SMEs to increase their risk awareness and own initiatives. This paper describes the methodological approaches and some preliminary findings obtained during field observations.
