The current study aims to investigate the given causes of an accident in order to implement preventive actions in accidents and similar organizations.
Materials and Methods: In this case study, after choosing the main event; to analyze the accidents, at first a set of questions in Management Oversight and Risk Tree (MORT) were answered. By answering the questions, the final events, and the inappropriate management risks (color-coded red) followed by the leading causes of the accident were identified.
Results: After analyzing the given accident, 22 inappropriate final events
coded red) and 4 assumed risks were identified. Of the total 12 identified basic causes, about 75 % were classified as the management policies and decision makings group, 17 % as the individual factors, and 18 % as the environmental factors group.
