Why is it better to apply the multiple causation theory rather than the unsafe acts/unsafe conditions model to an accident investigation?

 

Why is it better to apply the multiple causation theory rather than the unsafe acts/unsafe conditions model to an accident investigation? Provide an example that illustrates your point.

A maintenance worker mopped the floor in a hallway and then left the area without posting a “wet floor” warning. The lighting in the hallway had been lowered to conserve energy, so visibility was poor. Two employees walked down the hallway on their way to lunch, discussing where they wanted to go to eat. One of the employees slipped and fell, suffering a broken wrist.

Discuss how you could apply a domino theory to investigate this accident. You may make additional assumptions about the scenario, as needed, for your discussion.
