A Barrier Model for Road Traffic Applied to Accident Analysis
The concept barrier presently achieves considerable attention in risk management, for instance in nuclear  and offshore oil and gas industry [2, 3]. The term is used in slightly different ways, but usually a rather wide definition is applied [4, 5]. ISO 17776  notes that barriers may be physical (shields, materials, protective devices, segregation, etc.) or non-physical (procedures, training, drills, inspection etc.).
