Abstract

The primary purpose of this work was to develop an effective method for retrieval of relevant information from the European Commission's Major Accident Reporting Systems (MARS) database on major industrial accidents using queries on free text descriptions based on topic-specific and user-defined thesauri. This paper explores this new and quite general algorithm for the specific purposes of accident data analysis and tests it on different examples using MARS. The results are discussed and areas for further work are identified.
