Abstract: In July 2008, Work Package 5 (WP5) distributed a questionnaire to the broader SafetyNet partnership, with the aim of consulting on the investigation techniques and data gathering methods used in the creation of two European accident databases, SafetyNet Fatal Accident Database and SafetyNet Accident Causation Database. The questionnaire contained 11 questions which addressed the importance of collecting in-depth data, its potential usefulness, and the suitability of the methods used in addressing the aims of the study. For those unfamiliar with WP5, each question was preceded by a short explanatory text. In addition to answering the questions, respondents were invited to make additional comments explaining or elaborating on their opinion. The questionnaire was returned by 20 people from a range of institutes within the partnership. The majority of the work completed in work package 5 was judged to be appropriate for the type of study being conducted. The feedback received through the questionnaire responses and associated remarks generally supported the methodologies and working practices. This reflects the feedback received from the workshop which was held in June 2008 (D5.9 WP5 Methodology Workshop Report, SafetyNet 2008)
