Foundations of Safety Science
Foundations of Safety Science: A Century of Understanding Accidents and Disasters | Sidney Dekker
How are todays hearts and minds programs linked to a late-19th century definition of human factors as peoples moral and mental deficits? What do Heinrichs unsafe acts from the 1930s have in common with the Swiss cheese model of the early 1990s? Why was the reinvention of human factors in the 1940s such an important event in the development of safety thinking? What makes many of our current systems so complex and impervious to Tayloristic safety interventions? Foundations of Safety Science covers the origins of major schools of safety thinking, and traces the heritage and interlinkages of the ideas that make up safety science today. Features Offers a comprehensive overview of the theoretical foundations of safety science Provides balanced treatment of approaches since the early 20th century, showing interlinkages and cross-connections Includes an overview and key points at the beginning of each chapter and study questions at the end to support teaching use Uses an accessible style, using technical language where necessary Concentrates on the philosophical and historical traditions and assumptions that underlie all safety approaches
