- The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how an existing Department of Energy (DOE) resource can be used to gain valuable insight concerning injury/illness incidents. That resource is the Computerized Accident/Incident Reporting System (CAIRS) module of DOE`s Safety Performance Measurement System (SPMS). Although this demonstration could have been performed by analyzing reports associated with any numbers of hazards (e.g., noise, chemicals, explosives, electricity, or tools-power/hand), the CAIRS data selected for analysis were the 1981--1991 DOE injury/illness reports that cited a ``natural environment hazard`` as either the direct or indirect cause of the injury/illness. Specifically, injury/illness reports were selected for analysis if they had a causal factor link to one or more of four natural environment hazard categories; weather, animal life, vegetation, or specific acts of nature (e.g., floods, earthquakes, and lightning strikes).
