Organizational factors influencing serious occupational accidents.
The aim of this article is to examine organizational factors influencing serious occupational accidents.
The study was part of a larger project investigating 99 serious occupational accidents in southern Finland.
A workplace analysis and an accident analysis were done at accident sites.
In connection with this investigation, 73 victims, 91 foremen, and 83 co-workers were interviewed with a structured questionnaire.
The results showed that the need to save time, tight schedules, and a lack of caution had a greater influence on accidents than did the foremen, co-workers, customers, professional pride, curiosity, or the wipe system.
