By René Amalberti

Managing protection in a certified setting calls for consistent negotiation with different aggressive dimensions of probability administration (finances, marketplace and political drivers, manpower and social crisis). this is often noticeable, even if in general now not acknowledged in security manuals. The booklet offers a distinct imaginative and prescient of the way to most sensible locate those compromises, beginning with classes learnt from normal chance administration via members, then employing them to the craftsman undefined, complicated commercial platforms (civil aviation, nuclear strength) and public prone (like transportation and medicine). It deals a special, illustrated, effortless to learn and scientifically dependent set of unique techniques and pragmatic tips on how to revisit defense administration and undertake a winning process imaginative and prescient. As such, and with illustrations coming from many different fields (aviation, fishing, nuclear, oil, medicine), it in all likelihood covers a extensive readership.

Example text

These checks are relatively common to all the roundsmen, as if they were triggered simply by contact The Concept of “Adequacy” as a Cognitive Tool 37 with specific features in the environment. On the other hand, the remaining 40 % of checks are not linked to the environment, and are variable above all depending on the pressure of work for each roundsman. All this suggests that these controls are oriented mainly towards supervision of their own behaviour (I have allowed myself to become distracted, or I am thinking too much about this and not enough about my immediate work).

On the other hand, the knowledge of errors that is available has been used particularly intensively in work on safety in complex systems, but this has not always been successful due to the many contradictions or imperfections that arise when making the transition from theory to practice. Despite, or because of, this profusion of fashionable literature in which any assertion can be supported or contradicted, there are three recurring types of bias that have become established in the use of accident analysis in industry.

Allwood and Montgomery [14] added to these early works and supplied a theoretical context, based on work done on errors made by students in physics and mathematics exercises. They identified three separate phases in the correction process: detection, problem diagnosis and recovery. Detection simply meant perceiving that there was a problem during the course of the action (without identifying it). Diagnosis meant identifying the error. Recovery meant eliminating the error itself or its consequences.
