Foundations of Safety Science

De (autor): Sidney Dekker

How are today's `hearts and minds' programs linked to a late-19th century definition of human factors as people's moral and mental deficits? What do Heinrich's `unsafe acts' from the 1930's have in common with the Swiss cheese model of the early 1990's? Why was the reinvention of human factors in the 1940's 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.
