SUBJECTIVE FACTORS AND MODERN TECHNIQUES IN ACCIDENT OCCURRENCE

SUBJEKTIVE FAKTOREN UND MODERNE TECHNIK BEIM UNFALLGESCHEHEN

The classification of accidents takes into consideration two groups of factors concerned with occurrence: (1) the way in which the accident happened; (2) the cause which led to it. The causes of accidents are divided into 9 groups. The tables show the results of an analysis into more than 20000 operational accidents; the individual causes are quoted as percentages. It may be concluded with certainty that the personal factor plays the most important part in accident occurrence. From the point of view of prevention, one can influence these factors either by direct action upon the human being and his activities or one can choose another way, by which man creates such technical restrictions that accidents are prevented.
