- 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).
