Incident Management Systems can play a crucial role in helping to reduce
the number of workplace accidents by providing support for incident
analysis. In particular, the retrieval of relevant similar incident
reports can help safety personnel to identify factors and patterns that
have contributed or might potentially contribute to accidents. Incident
Report Retrieval is a relatively new research topic in the field of
Accident Reporting and Analysis, and we are interested in developing
intelligent computational support for retrieving incident information
that leverages both the featural and textual components of incident
reports. This paper describes InRet-T, an Incident Report Retrieval
system that incorporates approaches from textual case-based reasoning to
integrate both featural and textual aspects in retrieving civil aviation
incident reports. It also provides a preliminary evaluation of InRet-T
that offers some insight into the use of textual CBR approaches to
incident analysis.
