The present paper aims to develop a detailed occupational health and safety risk assessment in the case of the workplace "Cellular concrete cutter machinist" operating in a manufacturing company which is an important producer of precast concrete elements in the South-West of Romania. The paper includes a synthetic description of the method employed (structure, tools, working procedure). A case study for a particular working system is included in order to highlight the proper use of the method. The ultimate goal is to illustrate an example of good practice in the field of occupational risk assessment, in order to facilitate the adoption of effective prevention and protection measures targeting the risk minimization in industrial working environments.
