ACCIDENT STUDIES, BENEFITS AND POSSIBILITIES II
This is a comparison of two accident study methods, NATO- CCMS-method and the SWOV-METHOD. The multidisciplinary approach and the indepth and on-scene methods of accident investigation seem to be somewhat abused as far as crash accident studies are concerned. The NATO-STUDY is more concerned with the analysis form and investigation methodology. The purpose of the SWOV-STUDY was the establishing of the effects of seat belts in car accidents, and extended to the effects of all other relevant properties on the results of accident for occupants. A missing link in the NATO-STUDY is a defined purpose for the investigation of accidents. The SWOV-STUDY is a high quantity study as compared to the NATO-STUDY which is a low quantity study. The data from all teams should be combined as this is the only possible way of serving the purpose of all accident studies.
