SYSTEM ORIENTATED STRATEGY IN ACCIDENT RESEARCH

SYSTEMORIENTIERTE STRATEGIE IN DER UNFALLFORSCHUNG

The future of system orientated thinking from biology, which should be applied to the field of traffic safety, is described. Research in this field has polarised between one dimensional and multi-dimensional orientation. As a typical example of one-dimensional person-centred statements, reference is made to the problems of "selection of guidelines" and the concepts of accident proneness. These are contrasted with a system orientated strategy. The analysis of particular types of accidents in the traffic system demonstrate the interaction of numerous influences. Five steps necessary in system analysis are described. /TRRL/
