Download Safety-II in Practice: Developing the Resilience Potentials by Erik Hollnagel PDF

By Erik Hollnagel

Safety-I is outlined because the freedom from unacceptable damage. the aim of conventional protection administration is for this reason to discover how one can make certain this ‘freedom’. yet as socio-technical platforms gradually became greater and not more tractable, this has turn into more durable to do. Resilience engineering mentioned from the very starting that resilient functionality - an organisation’s skill to operate as required lower than anticipated and unforeseen stipulations alike – required greater than the prevention of incidents and injuries. This constructed right into a new interpretation of defense (Safety-II) and accordingly a brand new type of protection management.

Safety-II adjustments defense administration from protecting safeguard and a spotlight on how issues can get it wrong, to effective protection and a spotlight on how issues can and do move good. For Safety-II, the purpose isn't just the removing of risks and the prevention of mess ups and malfunctions but additionally how top to strengthen an organisation’s potentials for resilient functionality – how it responds, screens, learns, and anticipates. That calls for types and strategies that transcend the Safety-I toolbox. This e-book introduces a finished technique for the administration of Safety-II, known as the Resilience evaluation Grid (RAG). It explains the rules of the RAG and the way it may be used to boost the resilience potentials. The RAG presents 4 units of diagnostic and formative questions that may be adapted to any company. The questions are according to the foundations of resilience engineering and sponsored via functional adventure from a number of domains.

Safety-II in perform is for either the protection expert and educational reader. For the professional, it offers a doable approach (RAG) for the administration of Safety-II, with a confirmed music list. for educational and scholar readers, the publication is a concise and functional presentation of resilience engineering.
