Abstract: Abstract The article proposes a new method of occupational risk assessment which uses the grey decision model. The method is called the grey occupational risk assessment model (GORAM). The presented method allows for combining measurable and qualitative factors in the process of occupational risk assessment through the use of expert knowledge. This method can be applied to the multifaceted occupational risk assessment of complex and uncertain sociotechnical systems. First, the article presents problems with currently used methods of occupational risk assessment in the context of the possibility of solving them using the methods of the grey system theory. Secondly, the algorithm of the GORAM method is presented. Finally, the developed GORAM model was used in a case study involving the position of a mechanic in the technical department of a production company.
