Techniques discussed are general and can be applied to a wide range of industrial accidents. Topics covered include investigation concepts, the pitfalls of government intervention, legal aspects, multilinear events sequencing, and management oversight and risk tree (MORT). There is new material on the electronic and computer industries and on S-T-E-P accident investigation. A new chapter, ''A Generic Approach to Mishap Investigation,'' puts the entire process in perspective.Ferry, Ted S. is the author of 'Modern Accident Investigation and Analysis' with ISBN 9780471624813 and ISBN 0471624810.
