Abstract

The article is devoted to the essence and features of scientific research in the field of labor protection, which in a set of norms and practical measures is designed to ensure safe working conditions.

It is emphasized that today the priorities in the organization of scientific research and the main scientific problems in the field of labor protection require the analysis of the main achievements and problems of modern social and social relations, emphasis on providing systematic and integrated approaches, improving the regulatory framework for safety and health. and production environment, etc.

It is noted that basic and applied research on occupational safety, identification of occupational hazards are organized within the national and other programs on these issues and conducted by research institutes, design institutions and organizations, universities and professionals, and stressed that labor protection is characterized by clear interdisciplinary and intersectoral characteristics.

It is emphasized that for research in the field of labor protection it is important to note the following grading of methodology: first, it is a system of certain principles, rules and operations applied in a particular field of activity; secondly, it is the doctrine of this system, the general theory of methods.

It is explained that a significant number of different methods are traditionally used for the analysis of occupational injuries and occupational diseases at work, including statistical, topographic, monographic, economic, ergonomic, psychophysiological, questionnaires and some others.

Most attention in many scientific fields is traditionally paid to the method of systems analysis or systems approach. Research on labor protection issues is no exception, which is explained by the complexity of modern production and the general prevalence of occupational safety management systems.

The system analysis process is carried out in relation to the production environment, where people, processes, equipment / mechanisms and production facilities are components that can affect the safety and successful performance of the work or task. Each of these elements can add some degree of risk to people or equipment in the course of work. Therefore, in the process of system analysis, it is necessary to take into account all these factors in order to take into account the various potential hazards that may be associated with a particular job or task.

Emphasis is placed on the fact that when choosing and refining promising research methods, it is necessary to take into account current trends in the development of social and labor relations and labor protection. Such methods include, first of all, the Delphi method, the Pareto method, Forsyth and some others.

It is noted that the reference to the methodological basis in the basic legislation on labor protection requires further more detailed interpretation.
