Engineering a Safer World: Systems Thinking Applied to Safety
by Nancy G. Leveson
Publisher: The MIT Press 2012
Number of pages: 555
Revisiting and updating ideas pioneered by 1950s aerospace engineers in their System Safety concept, and testing her new model extensively on real-world examples, Leveson has created a new approach to safety that is more effective, less expensive, and easier to use than current techniques.
