This unit will enable you to understand the phenomena of accidents from an epidemiological perspective and apply your learning to actively improve safety. You will use an analytical approach to evaluate risk and demonstrate an understanding of both failures and failure prevention methods. As part of your study in the unit you will apply a range of theoretical accident causation models to systems failures, while understanding their effective characteristics, including the strengths and weaknesses of these models. On completion, you will be able to articulate the evolution of principles, methods and models relating to the phenomenology and epidemiology of accidents, accident prevention systems and forensic analysis of accident data.
