An Engineer's View Of Human Error
Human error is widely believed to be the cause of many accidents. But it is more effective to remove opportunities for error, by changing designs or methods of working, than try to persuade people not to make errors. This theme is illustrated by descriptions of many accidents, mainly but not entirely in the chemical and process industries, and the actions needed to prevent them happening again. THe book will help managers, accident investigators and designers find the best methods of prevention, particularly if the accidents described in it are used as subjects for discussion.
