HUMAN FACTORS IN CONSUMER PRODUCT ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION

Using task analysis as a basis, a job aid was developed to enable accident investigators to obtain human factors data during their investigations. For each product, a limited number of characteristic accident patterns were found; these are referred to as hazard patterns or scenarios. These patterns were used to structure "intelligent" questionnaires, with sections on the victim, the task, the product, and the environment.
