Abstract : This initial research developed a survey technique designed to uncover specific areas of weakness in organizational safety. It was postulated that data concerning insurance claims, medical treatment, and other recorded accident cause variables may be contaminated since certain accident causes are either not reported or erroneously reported for a variety of issues such as fear of blame, misperceptions, and other intentional and unintentional reasons.
