Safety Sciences, Division of WSA Inc., San Diego, California, 1978 Jan:100 pages
The background to and development of an accident investigation methodology (AIM) to analyze occupational injuries are reviewed. On- site investigation of 125 fall accidents was conducted. Accident models, such as the management oversight and risk tree, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, and the Frase coding models, are described and the application of their concepts to AIM is discussed. AIM factors, such as sampling considerations, conduct of accident investigations, data collection and analysis, and procedures evaluation and modification are described, along with the conceptual basis of AIM. AIM components of organizational safety analysis, accident sequence analysis, and hazards/countermeasures analysis are summarized.
