CHAPTER 3: CONCEPT OF HAZARD AVOIDANCE - Enforcement Approach - Psychological Approach - Engineering Approach - Analytical Approach The Analytical Approach - it deals with hazards by studying their mechanisms, analyzing statistical  histories, computing probabilities of accidents, conducting epidemiological  and toxicological studies, and weighing costs and benefits of hazard  elimination. - Involves computation in many analytical methods but not all A. Accident Analysis –  is in nature, considered a  posteriori  , means  performed after the fact, too late to prevent the consequences of the  accident that has already happened. The value of analysis for future accident prevention is critical (vital or  important). Accident Analysis with other Approaches a. The enforcement approach  would be more palatable to the public if the  enforcing agency would spend more time analyzing accident histories. b. The psychological approach  could also be strengthened a great deal by  substantiating persuasive appeals with actual results of accidents.

c. The engineering approach  needs accident analysis to know where the  problems are and to design a solution to deal with all of the accident  mechanisms. B.
