Project Website:

This project intends to increase the efficiency of the way in which occupational accident information is used to improve safety organizational learning and prevention. The processing of information evolves up in the hierarchy through a cycle of different activities, such as: the initial gathering of information, its coding and interpretation (sometimes using pre-defined classification systems), the analysis of aggregated data and, finally, the way in which this information is used for learning the right lessons and for developing prevention strategies.
