The second factor, severity of injury, should be analyzed in conjunction with the first factor, product hazardousness
. Thus, if a product is proven hazardous based on extensive safety regulations imposed by government safety organizations, and the injury is caused by a hazard that the regulations intend to prevent against, the severity of the injury should be considered with great weight.
The standard creates a two-part chain of disclosure: First, chemical manufacturers and importers must evaluate the hazardousness

We regress work refusals and anonymous health and safety complaints on five groups of independent variables, categorized as follows: industrial relations factors (whether collective bargaining is taking place, occurrence of a strike, occurrence of an interest arbitration, restrictions on the right to strike, and the use of grievance arbitrations); workplace and bargaining unit characteristics (the presence of an occupational health and safety committee, the hazardousness
of the workplace, the total number of workers, and the presence of part-time workers in the bargaining unit); occupation; the union representing the bargaining unit; and industry.
