Close Enough is not Good Enough: Improving the Reliability of Accident and Incident Classification Systems in High Hazard Industries

This thesis aimed to understand the factors influencing the reliability of accident and incident classification systems in high-hazard industries and subsequently, to develop methods to achieve high consensus in these classification systems. To explore reliability the Human Factors Analysis and Classification System and its Australian Defence Force derivative version were used as case studies for reliability assessment. The reliability of each system was assessed and factors associated with coder expertise, training and usability explored.
