Definition: Deviation

Living conditions

The last event deviating from normality and leading to the accident. This is the description of the abnormal event, i.e. the Deviation from the normal working process. The Deviation is the event that triggers the accident. If there is a chain of events, the last Deviation must be recorded (the Deviation closest in time to the injuring contact).
