Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) methods are used widely for risk assessment in various industry sectors. In this study, Risk Matrix applied for risk assessment is integrated with fuzzy The Technique for Order Preferences by Similarity to an Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) method. Fuzzy method is employed to deal with uncertain information derived from the nature of industry and subjective evaluation of decision makers (DMs). Once the required risk parameters for Risk Matrix’ are determined, the hazards are ranked using fuzzy TOPSIS method in glass industry. Consequently, satisfactory results are obtained as a result of the Risk Matrix based fuzzy MCDM risk assessment approach.
