Introduction: Health care workers are exposed to vast number of occupational hazards. According to the importance of protecting these valuable workforces, it is necessary to assess various deleterious factors in their career to make right decisions in dealing with these situations.
Methods and Materials: In this study, first, all the hazards of different units of a treatment center were investigated. Then, one of the units that had the most hazardous of them was selected based on hazardous identification checklists. Finally, the most important hazard of previous step were ranked by analytical network Process.
Results: The results of analytical network process indicated that the risk associated with personnel safety in formaldehyde exposure regions, had higher priority with considering a weight factor equal to 0.55 for all indexes. However, the exposure to anesthetist gases and job stress had the highest rank, considering financial and credit consequences separately.
Discussion and Conclusion: Results confirmed that using analytical network process along with other methods of hazard identification will accelerate this process and achieve more trustable results. Moreover, it will facilitate the decision making process.
