It uses major accidents to identify common causal factors, or "echoes", and specific experience parameters for each particular industry vital to achieving a minimum error rate defined by mathematical prediction. New ideas for the perception and prediction of risk are introduced, and safety management is covered in depth, including for rare events and "unknown" outcomes" "Managing Risk: the Human Element is an essential read for professional safety experts, human reliability experts and engineers in all technological industries, as well as risk analysts and corporate managers. It is also of interest to professors, researchers and postgraduate students of reliability and safety engineering, and to experts in human performance."--Jacket.
