Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0849307783, Paperback)

To prevent future accidents, a complete examination of the causes and contributory factors of an accident is necessary. Stressing the need to correct these issues, Incident Investigation and Accident Prevention in the Process and Allied Industries strikes a balance between the theoretical and applied aspects of accident investigation while also addressing accident prevention.

Based on the authors forty years of experience, this detailed work covers an extensive range of topics often encountered during an incident investigation. Since the scope and needs of investigations can widely vary, the author begins with an introduction that provides guidance on how to use the book. He supplies a "roadmap" of incident investigation, making the material accessible to novices yet also valuable to more seasoned investigators.

Topics include:
Responding to occurrence of incidents and emergency response
Securing the site and handling eyewitness testimonies
Notification of appropriate authorities, compliance requirements, and legal and insurance issues
Internal/external incident investigation options and investigation team requirements
Disassembly, gathering, screening, tagging, storing of evidence, and post-incident testing
Establishing preliminary causal mechanisms and root cause determinations
Multiple cause determination, incident modeling, and human error evaluation and reporting
Remedial and preventative measures, lessons learned, and reconstruction and retraining
Accident prevention through predictive methodologies, including pro-active measures
Pre- and post-incident management
Corporate structuring, attitudinal problems, and planning an accident prevention program
