Safety certification and inspection of dangerous machines and equipments used in industries are to save lives of workers and properties involved. Cause analysis of industrial accidents is essential to prove the effectiveness of such certification and inspection. This study focuses on suggesting systematic method for cause analysis of industrial accidents associated with dangerous machines and devices. Incorporating transition from the current user-oriented indirect regulations to more manufacturer and user balanced direct regulations, suggested method coupled with safety certification, safety inspection, safety management and safety education will guarantee more effective prevention of industrial accidents.
