Title: Management Oversight and Risk Tree - MORT

Abstract

A management Oversight and Risk Tree (MORT) was designed to provede a technique for thorough, searching investigation of occupational accidents and analysis of safety programs. MORT has been used to improve safety in specific activities and in already low accident rates or probabilities. MORT is a formal, disciplined logic or decision tree to systematically relate and integrate a wide varity of safety concepts. Trials of MORT have shown an ability to assist persons from a discipline - safety, management, engineering, sciences or other staff specialities and experienced craftsmen - to quickly apply and broaden their skills in accident analysis and safety review, and have provided a common base for communication, cooperation, and planning for greater accident control. At the same time, the disciplined MORT format has shown flexibility in rapid evaluation and assimilation of new experience, judgment, findings or technology. Specific safety innovation and acceptance methods and projects have been outlined for transition to a comprehensive, superlative safety system.
