there are plenty of methods could be used for the systematic analysis of occupational safety and health in general, and risk analysis in particular. This study was initiated in order to create a HIRARC model for the evaluation of environmental safety and health at a shipyard of PT. X in Madura, Indonesia. The HIRARC model was used to identify the primary and secondary hazards which may be inherent in the system which were determined as a serious threat for work activities in the shipyard. The primary tools of the model consisted of work place inspection schemes which included task observation and interview, safety analysis as well as accident and incident investigation. For risk assessment, the Likelihood scale was complemented by the severity matrix analysis in order to determine the probability and extent of safety and health at the shipyard. These were used to identify and recommend control measures which included engineering and administrative aspects as well as the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) for the activities in the shipyard.
