Abstract
The NIOSH Accident Investigation Methodology (AIM) is described. AIM will be an integral part of a four level surveillance system intended to monitor the occupational accident/injury experience of American workers. The investigation procedure is oriented toward the identification of occupational accident/injury countermeasures and associated research needs. Emphasis is placed upon modern systems theory, which considers human factors as a primary component in the etiology of worker injury. The author notes that the AIM methodology has been used successfully on numerous occupational injuries in 1979 and 1980.
