Abstract

Several investigations on the accident causes in animal housing have revealed that the risk reduction is strongly related not only to the objective conditions of the operational means (buildings, machines and plants) but even more to the subjective modes adopted in using such means by workers. To face this problem an interactive tool for training has been realized, capable of producing a personalized evaluation of the farm operators about the level of knowledge on accident prevention, with specific reference to the working procedures. Such a tool has been promoted by the INAIL (Italian Institute for Workers Accident Insurance) that granted the realization and diffusion of a CD-ROM aimed at promoting the knowledge of the proper accident-preventive procedures among the subjects operating with various roles in animal farms. The main and innovative part of this product is consisting of an automated evaluation test based on various lists of questions, with multiple fixed answers among which the user has to choose those (not necessarily just one) that he considers correct. At the end a score is given determining a level of sufficiency (or not) with respect to a predetermined minimum standard and the wrong answers are put into evidence.
