about this item

Spurgin and Stupples discuss decision making as it applies to high-risk industries, and how to apply the lessons from accident analysis. Their goal is to improve the whole attitude of the business community as to what it really takes to select and train decision makers in the control of these types of business. There is no such thing as accident, they declare, only failure. Among their topics are cybernetic organizational model, Ashby's law of requisite variety and its application, the role of regulation in industrial operations, the use of simulation for different operations, and investment in safety.
