calculation of workload


Hi, everybody! In our laboratory, we currently calculate workload according to technican hour spent on a task.  However, we want to review whether this is a fair way to compare workload among different laboratories, no matter they are whether in the same discipline or not.  I would like to know whether there is a widely accepted system to do this in other countries.  I read something about the relative value unit (RVU) for medicare reimbursement.  Does anybody think that's a good reflection of the amount of effort spent on a particular task?   Are there any on-line websites that I cango to for this information?  Any input would be much appreciated.  TIA.
