Abstract

The analysis method presented in this book is based on the MORT (Management Oversight and Risk Tree) method, originally developed at Systems Safety Center in the United States. The MORT safety analysis is intended especially for the use of organisation managements. The analysis helps managers evaluate the goals of their safety work and the measures taken to reach them, the principal goal being naturally to improve safety and thus quality as well as productivity. This version is intended for the independent use of organisations themselves. The analysis is done by team or teams, who should have expert knowledge of the organisation both vertically and horizontally in order to be able to identify the factors which may cause accidents or other interruptions in production. The identification is made by using the MORT key question set as a check list. The questions check the functions, managing of safety matters as well safety of daily as the safety planning in investment projects. A comparison is then made with an ideal model on which the question set is based. The researchers at the Safety Engineering Laboratory of the Technical Research Centre of Finland have applied the MORT method in Finnish industrial organisations for a  More>>

The researchers at the Safety Engineering Laboratory of the Technical Research Centre of Finland have applied the MORT method in Finnish industrial organisations for a number of years, and have consequently gathered considerable experience since the 1970`s when the first steps in this field were taken. This handbook includes the question set, instructions for its use and material for internal information about the analysis in the company.}
