Modern technology has now reached a point where improved safety can only be achieved through a better understanding of human error mechanisms. In its treatment of major accidents, the book spans the disciplinary gulf between psychological theory and those concerned with maintaining the reliabiblity of hazardous technologies. Much of the theoretical structure is new and original, and of particular importance is the identification of cognitive processes common to a wide variety of error types.

"...an in-depth analytical framework of human error..." Journal of Perinatal & Neonatal Nursing "...a comprehensive and often innovative treatment of human error that is both readable and informative." Gavan Lintern, Human Factors Society Bulletin
