Investigating Industrial Investigators: Tunnel Vision and the Professional Investigator

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Undergraduates and professional investigators engaged in a mock industrial investigation to test the effect of a priori knowledge on investigative decision making and the effectiveness of a “tunnel vision education” debiasing intervention. Our findings reveal that prior knowledge about worker or equipment safety biased undergraduate and professional-investigators’ decision-making in assigning cause for the industrial event. However, bias was effectively reduced with “tunnel vision education”. Professional investigators demonstrated a greater sophistication in their investigative decision making compared to undergraduates. The similarities and differences between undergraduate and professional responding are discussed.
