Predicting and analyzing employee safety decision-making is an important component of managing safety in the workplace. This presentation will discuss the process of transforming existing safety decisionmaking data into an event tree pathway. Event tree analysis methodology is utilized to identify contributing factors in complex systems, illustrate interrelationships of the causes of specified events, and to quantify probabilities of occurrence for each pathway of events. Once pathways are constructed and probabilities for each are estimated, safety decision paths with the highest probabilities can be targeted for educational intervention. Thus, the use of safety decision-making data with event tree analysis has great potential for use in the discipline of safety management.
