In earlier work, these scientists already the capability to predict and interpreting different automatic learning are analyzed techniques and found that Bayesian networks, apart from the fact that a similar predictive ability, other statistical methods , have excellent interpretative capacity . Rivas points out that Bayesian networks can be improved as a result as a result of which they. A very useful tool for identifying causes of accidents and laying the foundations for an understanding of a solid basis prevention policies.. To authors of this study surveyed nearly 400 workers from 103 companies in industry, construction and service sectors in the performance of their duties in height. Bayesian networks, In earlier work so-called automatic learning statistical techniques, the graphical expression of the relationship of dependence between variables, as well as the use of estimates in Probabilistic conditions , the influence of individual variables and their interaction in the type of case, were used to analyze the research data.
