As part of an undergraduate engineering class project, a Tim Hortons restaurant on the University of Michigan campus was simulated to improve its efficiency. Using the standard simulation study steps, several service scenarios were modeled and evaluated based on customer system time. A detailed analysis of the simulation revealed that, in the current setup,(More)

Specific care for workers' health has been largely deficient during the past decade, despite the existing legislation. Consequently, the protection of workers' health has been seriously endangered, with the resultant long-term damage. The main reasons for this were the absence of clearly defined responsibilities regarding the financing and execution of the(More)
Evaluation of occupational lead poisoning and resultant permanent work disability calls for a procedure which is not easy to conduct. This is because vague, non-manifest lead poisonings and transient pre-poisoning states have lately prevailed over clearly manifested, obvious lead poisonings as were found earlier due to unfavourable working conditions.

According to Croatian legislation disability, risk of disability and altered work capacity are prerequisites for recognition of job injuries, occupational diseases, and, consequently, of the worker's special rights. That is also valid for all areas of insurance. The legislation, if applied, would make it impossible for a great number of insured workers to(More)
A total of 139 cases of occupational asbestosis were registered in companies working with asbestosis in Croatia between the years 1985 and 1994. In the period from 1992 to 1994 thirty-five diseased workers sued in court for compensation of damage. In all suits and at all levels, the employer was judged to be responsible for the damage.
