An Integrated Approach to Near Miss Analysis Combining AcciMap and Network Analysis

Contemporary safety philosophies, such as Safety II, promote the importance of understanding effective work practices as well as those leading to adverse events. Despite this, little safety research has focused on identifying and representing these protective practices in incident analysis. This study combined AcciMap and network analysis methods to identify and evaluate the system-wide protective practices occurring within a set of led outdoor activity domain near miss incidents. The analysis was based on subject matter expert surveys and interviews regarding near miss incidents. The findings revealed a large set of interrelated protective factors. These factors were about communication, policy and procedure, individual and organizational behavioral influences, and environmental conditions across the sociotechnical system. It is argued that network analysis should be combined with AcciMap in future incident analyses.
