Abstract: 

Occupational health and safety, especially with the legal arrangements enforced recently, has become a subject coming to the forefront more and more. Negligence in this regard may lead to serious material and moral results. Therefore, the fulfillment of necessary applications on the subject and the effectiveness of such applications are of great importance. In this study, the current occupational health and safety practices in the hospitality industry were examined with regards to their level of effectiveness. For this purpose, through the questionnaires administered to the employees, analytical and quantitative measurement of effectiveness was conducted by using the factor analysis and Fuzzy Rule Based System (FRB). We have analyzed not only the factors affecting the success of applications, but also the importance level of them. In addition, we have observed how the effectiveness of the activity changed when the factors were interfered. Thus, unlike previous studies, a new hybrid methodology which allows us to make numerical analysis and interpret the effectiveness of occupational health and safety practices was revealed. It is anticipated that this methodology can become a standard measurement tool to evaluate the success of these applications by means of applying them on other industries in the future.
