Abstract
The goal of this chapter is to provide an overview of the numerous approaches to accident and incident investigation in occupational settings, covering a range of approaches that range from using administrative databases to more complex systems approaches. More attention will be given to human-centered approaches, as mismatches between human capabilities and the demands posed by systems are often a key component of accidents. The type of investigation selected will vary depending on the frequency and severity of the incident(s) in question.
