Abstract

JHSUs should have occupational safety specialists, workplace physicians, and other health personnel to establish and provide services. To provide occupational safety services in the most effective operating environment, it is necessary to select the most appropriate JHSU. This chapter provides a hybrid model to assist the JHSU selection process. Using fuzzy logic linguistic variables makes an important contribution to decision making in uncertain environment. The hybrid model using Fuzzy AHP (Analytical Hierarchy Process) and Fuzzy TOPSIS (Technique for Similarity Sorting Preference for Ideal Solution) approaches were used in JHSU selection. The most important criterion was found to be the references of JHSU. Candidate JHSUs were evaluated on the basis of criteria with fuzzy TOPSIS. Five alternative JHSU were evaluated. Alternative 2 was found to be the most appropriate choice. A numerical example is presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed hybrid model.
