Methodology for Establishing and Operating Productive Accident Investigation Programs 700439

Based upon nine years of experience in conducting in-depth, clinical motor vehicle accident investigations, the conditions and practices that have been found to be essential to the collection of reliable and adequate information are defined. The role of the director and the selection of personnel for the investigation teams and their qualifications, training, and supervision are discussed. The establishment and maintenance of relationships with the civil authorities, and hospitals and para-medical personnel with which the accident investigation teams must work, are explained.
Examples from actual experience are presented to demonstrate the usefulness of the authors' accident investigation information in identifying areas where vehicle design improvement is desirable and evidence that corrective action taken by the vehicle manufacturers has proved effective.
