The dictionary defines accident as "an unexpected and undesirable event, a mishap unforeseen and without apparent cause. So, what causes them, and how can you avoid them?
Just Culture is also available as Audiobook A just culture is a culture of trust, learning and accountability. It is particularly important when an incident has occurred; when something has gone wrong.
How do you respond to the people involved? What do you do to minimize the negative impact, and maximize learning? Supported by extensive case material, you will learn about safety reporting and honest disclosure, about retributive just culture and about the criminalization of human error.
Some suspect a just culture means letting people off the hook. Yet they believe they need to remain able to hold people accountable for undesirable performance. One is by asking which rule was broken, who did it, whether that behavior crossed some line, and what the appropriate consequences should be.
But who will draw that line? And is the process fair? Another way to approach accountability after an incident is to ask who was hurt. To ask what their needs are. And to explore whose obligation it is to meet those needs. People involved in causing the incident may well want to participate in meeting those needs.
Learn to look at accountability in different ways and your impact on restoring trust, learning and a sense of humanity in your organization could be enormous.
Lower- and upper-level undergraduates; general readers. Would that we could achieve it! The questions that the author raises need to be discussed at all levels of government, and by judges and lawyers, and by ministers of health.
Dekker makes it clear that profound changes must be made in both the legal and the medical systems if we really wish to improve medical safety. Thought-provoking, erudite, and analytical, but very readable, Sidney Dekker uses many practical examples from diverse safety-critical domains and provides a framework for managing this issue.
It is concerned with reducing negative events and sees the human factor as a problem to control. Despite the transformation brought about by human factors, which asked not who was responsible, but what was responsible for triggering errors and failures, safety thinking once again tends to target people with behavioral interventions, rather than the system, the technology, or the environment in which people work.
The unrelenting pace of technological change and growth of complexity call for a different kind of safety thinking today.What really happens when you crash your car? Why do some people get badly injured – or worse – in a seemingly simple prang?
David Washington takes a close look at the ugly anatomy of a road crash. The prediction of accidents, or systems failure, should be driven by an appropriate accident causation model. Whilst various models exist, none is yet universally accepted, but elements of different models are.
