System model proposes the failure in coordination of three systems i. This model has been used for many years by people at all levels in organisations from supervisors through to safety managers to investigate incidents with good success due to its ease of use and thoroughness of approach. This perspective has a limited view of accident causality, as it ignores the work system factors and their interactions that generate the hazardous situations and shape the work behaviors. Understanding and addressing these causal factors that lead to accidents is necessary to develop effective accident prevention strategies. The model takes a systems view of accidents it focuses on how the characteristics of the production system generate hazardous situations and shape the work behaviors, and analyzes the conditions that trigger the release of the hazards.
Controlling the Controllable: The Management of Safety. This option is a delicate one: in contrast with the difficulty to further motivate people it is almost too easy to Lick butts employees to the extent that even mldel is considered. There is an element of risk involved in changing the vent filters because of two potential hazards. This theory is useful for determining injury causation and evaluating energy hazards and control methodology. There were deviations from the original modeo violations.

It was physically demanding work, and she was the first woman ever selected by PDS to work in the loading unit. She was excited about her new position because within PDS, the loading unit was considered a springboard to advancement. Consequently, she was anxious to do well. The responsibility she felt toward other female employees at PDS only served to intensify her anxiety.
Andrews felt that if she failed, other women might not get a chance to try in the future. Before beginning work in the loading unit, employees must complete two days of training on proper lifting techniques. The use of back-support belts is mandatory for all loading dock personnel. Consequently, Andrews became concerned when the supervisor called her aside on her first day in the unit and told her to forget what she had learned in training.
But the key to success in this unit is speed. The lifting techniques they teach you in that workshop will just slow you down. Epidemiological Model Example continued Andrews was torn between following safety procedures and making a good impression on her new supervisor.
At first, she made an effort to use proper lifting techniques. Before long, Andrews had won the approval and respect of her colleagues. However, after two months of working in the loading unit, she began to experience persistent lower back pain. Andrews felt sure that her hurried lifting techniques were to blame, but she valued the approval of her supervisor and fellow workers too much to do anything that might slow her down.
Finally, one day while loading a truck, she fell to the pavement in pain and could not get up. Her back throbbed with intense pain, and her legs were numb.
She had to be rushed to the emergency room of the local hospital. By the time she was checked out of the hospital a week later, she had undergone major surgery to repair two ruptured disc. Systems Theory Example Precision Tooling Company PTC specializes in difficult orders that are produced in small lots, and in making corrections to parts that otherwise would wind up as expensive rejects in the scrap bin. In short, PTC specializes in doing the types of work that other companies cannot, or will not do.
Consequently, living up to its reputation as a high performance, on-time company is important to PTC. Because much of its work consists of small batches of parts to be reworked, PTC still uses several manually operated machines. The least experienced machinists operate these machines.
This causes two problems. The first problem is that it is difficult for even a master machinist to hold to modern tolerance levels on these old machines. Consequently, apprentice machinists find holding to precise tolerances quite a challenge. The second problem is that the machines are so old that they frequently break down. Complaints from apprentice machinists about the old machines are frequent. Johnson Company. Simply scrapping the part and starting over was an expensive solution.
PTC management was ecstatic! Finally, they had won an opportunity to partner with H. If PTC could perform well on this one, even more lucrative contracts were sure to follow. The top managers called a company- wide meeting of all employees. Attendance was mandatory. The CEO explained to the employees that the contract was a great opportunity for the company to move into the stratosphere.
However, the parts that needed reworking would have to go through several manual operations in the beginning of the process. So, he explained that the manual machine operators would have to be the heroes for this particular job; and, the parts have to be ready in 90 days. The PTC apprentice machinists were on the spot.
Since stored grain generates fine dust and gases, ventilation of the silos is important. Each of these vents uses a filter similar to the type used in home air conditioners that must be changed periodically. There is an element of risk involved in changing the vent filters because of two potential hazards.
The first hazard comes from unvented dust and gases that can make breathing difficult, or even dangerous. The second hazard is the grain itself. Each silo has a catwalk that runs around its inside circumference near the top. These catwalks give employees access to the vents that are also near the top of each silo. The catwalks are almost feet above ground level, they are narrow, and the guardrails on them are only knee high.
A fall from a catwalk into the grain below would probably be fatal. Consequently, CGC has well-defined rules that employees are to follow when changing filters. Perez was not new to the company. At the time of his accident, he had worked at CGC for over five years. However, he was new to the job of silo maintenance. His inexperience, as it turned out, would prove fatal. Combination Theory Example Continued It was time to change the vent filters in silo number 4. Perez had never changed vent filters himself.
Since Chu Lai was at home recuperating from heart surgery and would be out for another four weeks, Perez decided to change the filters himself. He believed in taking reasonable precautions as much as the next person, but in his opinion, CGC was paranoid about safety.
Perez collected his safety harness, respirator, and four new vent filters. Before going in, Perez donned his respirator and strapped on his safety harness. Opening the hatch cover, he stepped inside the silo onto the catwalk. Following procedure, Perez attached a lifeline to his safety harness, picked up the new vent filters, and headed for the first vent. He changed the first two filters without incident.
It was while he was changing the third filter that tragedy struck. The filter in the third vent was wedged in tightly. After several attempts to pull it out, Perez became frustrated and gave the filter a good jerk. When the filter suddenly broke loose, the momentum propelled him backwards and he toppled off the catwalk.
At first it appeared that his lifeline would hold, but without a second person to pull him up or call for help, Perez was suspended by only the lifeline for over 20 minutes.
He finally panicked, and in his struggle to pull himself up, knocked the buckle of his safety harness open.

Accident causation model system defect. Description:
Accident causation models vary from simplistic linear models to complex non-linear models. Safeopedia explains Accident Causation Model Systematic examination of causes of accidents began in the early 20th century. There are three basic types of accident causation models: Simple linear models Heinrich, - Presumes that an accident is the end result of a series of sequential events playing out like dominos. The sequence begins with the social environmental factor, individual factor, unsafe acts, mechanical and physical hazards, accident, injury, etc..
It is expected that, the elimination of one of the dominos may prevent the accident Complex linear models - Presumes that an accident is a combination of a number of unsafe conditions and factors where an individual interacting close to the system is at the risk of an accident.
It is expected that an accident could be prevented by setting appropriate controls. Accidents could be prevented through understanding these multiple interacting factors. Share this:. Related Terms.
