What is an Accident. Accidents have been broadly defined as: A short, sudden and unexpected event or occurrence that results in an unwanted and undesirable outcome … and must directly or indirectly be the result of human activity rather than a natural event..
Accident models affect the way people think: about safety, how they identify and analyze risk factors, and how they measure performance; Accident models can be used in both reactive and proactive safety management; and many models are based on an idea of causality ... accidents are thus the result of technical failures, human errors or organizational problems..
