Abstract

An injury severity model is proposed for assessment of injury incidents in industrial settings. A classification scheme for injury incidents considering interactions is also developed. The injury severity model considers injury potential in the form of unsafe conditions and analyzes its transfer to actual injury of varying severity. A case study was conducted in an underground coalmine of eastern India. An observed reduction in risk realization is explained through the model. Presence of interactions is found to be the most significant incident attribute of injury occurrences. The classification scheme and the results obtained from this study will help in improving accident/injury investigation reporting and devising preventive measures for reducing injury severity.
