Accident Causation Analysis

Understanding the ACAT model of Accident Causation Analysis

It is very difficult to prevent accidents from happening at work but, if they do happen, you must handle them in a manner that satisfies your obligations. . If it is a serious incident, as well as calling the emergency services, you should notify the health and safety authority in your State or Territory immediately, in accordance with the relevant Workplace Health and Safety Legislation.

Workplace health and safety accidents can have a negative impact on your business in many ways. They can result in a loss of productivity, reduced staff morale, increased absenteeism, and even temporary or permanent closure.

According to research from Safe Work Australia, 120,355 people lodged a serious claim in 2019-20.

Accident Causation Analysis can help you figure out why an accident happened, and then prevent similar accidents from happening again. Classifying accident causes can give you a better understanding of accidents and also help in statistics. Although there are many models for classifying accident causes, some are specific to one area while others are too general or complicated to be practical.

The ACAT (An Accident Causation Analysis and Taxonomy) model presents a way to address the two basic issues of accident analysis:

  • What is the failure, and
  • How does the failure happen?

The model comes from both a system safety perspective and a control theory perspective. Complex systems can be decomposed into six components from the system safety perspective: machine, man, management, information, resources and environment. From the control theory perspective, actuator, sensor, controller and communication are defined as system factors' functional abstractions. The combinations of system factors and control functions form a matrix model for accident causation analysis and classification.

Background - Swiss cheese model

The Swiss cheese model of accident causation was first put forward by James T. Reason of the University of Manchester and has since become a widely accepted accident causation model. This a model used in risk analysis and risk management, including aviation safety, engineering, healthcare, emergency service organizations, and as the principle behind layered security, as used in computer security and defense in depth. It likens human systems to multiple slices of Swiss cheese, stacked side by side, in which the risk of a threat becoming a reality is mitigated by the differing layers and types of defenses which are ‘layered’ behind each other. Therefore, in theory, lapses and weaknesses in one defense do not allow a risk to materialize, since other defenses also exist, to prevent a single point of failure.

In simple words, the idea behind it is that there are lots of different layers of defense against accidents, like the slices of cheese in Swiss cheese. So if one layer has a problem, there are other layers that will stop the accident from happening.

Course outline

Alertforce’s Accident causation analysis training course looks at how accidents and incidents happen, why they happen, and what we can do to prevent them. You'll analyse a variety of sources, from historical perspectives to current behavioural theories, for their application to today's workplaces. We'll also discuss accident investigation techniques and their legal implications. As part of your course requirements, you'll conduct a real or mock accident investigation.

This course is designed to create safer workplaces.
