About the course

Acci­dent cau­sa­tion the­o­ry is the art and sci­ence that seeks to under­stand the deep­er roots of why acci­dents hap­pen. Under­stand­ing acci­dent cau­sa­tion the­o­ry is essen­tial in deter­min­ing why work­place inci­dents occur and so that we can pre­vent re-occur­rences. Through exam­ples and case stud­ies, stu­dents will gain an overview of the most impor­tant the­o­ries, strengths and weak­ness­es of each, and learn how to select the best the­o­ries and mod­els to bet­ter under­stand why acci­dents occur.
