ABSTRACT
This paper presents the methodology of risk assessment of accidents and occupational health where there are specified the required steps of risk level evaluation, the scales for measuring the severity and probability of consequences and methods of risk treatment. Based on these theoretical notions, the elaborated case study focuses on risk assessment of health and occupational security for a multi-skilled worker specific to the process execution of forest road. After the assessment, there is a significant minimization of identifying risk factors and an improvement in workplace activities.
