Abstract This report is part of a multivariate analysis of accident data compiled in a variety of workshops of a large automobile and truck factory in Sweden; it applies particularly to assembly workers. Six typical accident patterns are described. It was found that accidents of any pattern might occur in any workshop, but that their distribution might vary according to the type of sub-tasks performed. Accident frequency also varied considerably from workshop to workshop. The contribution of this type of analysis to safety planning is discussed.
