SUMMARY

A successful accident investigation determines not only what

happened, but also finds how and why the accident occurred.

Investigations are crucial as an effort to prevent a similar or

perhaps more disastrous sequence of events. Research has shown

that a typical accident is the result of many related and unrelated

factors that somehow all come together at the same time. It is

estimated that there are usually more than ten factors that

contribute to a serious accident. Although, this combination of

factors normally makes an investigation very time consuming and

resource intensive, the good news is that the accident can normally

be prevented by removing only a few of the contributing factors.
