This new edition of a standard in the field is the most complete treatment available on modern methods of accident investigation. The investigation process is divided into three phases: preparation and planning, analytical methods and reporting, and corrective actions designed to prevent recurrence. Techniques discussed are general and can be applied to a wide range of industrial accidents. Topics covered include investigation concepts, the pitfalls of government intervention, legal aspects, multilinear events sequencing, and management oversight and risk tree (MORT). There is new material on the electronic and computer industries and on S-T-E-P accident investigation. A new chapter, ``A Generic Approach to Mishap Investigation,'' puts the entire process in perspective.
