Conference paper


This paper describes a dedicated software tool to analyse incidents, to statistically process them and to edit reports. This tool, named OCAAR, is made up of two programs: one for each local unit (e.g. a plant), and one for the headquarters (to combine the information coming from each local unit). The incident analysis is based on two methods: the cause tree method and the incident chain method. They allow the incident causes to be analysed, and the succession of the disruptive factors leading to the incident to be identified.
