Sociotechnical Systems, Risk, and Error

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter presents the reprinted article "The Walkerton E. coli outbreak: a test of Rasmussen's framework for risk management in a dynamic society" by Kim J. Vicente and Klaus Christoffersen. The chapter provides a very detailed application of a risk management framework developed by Jens Rasmussen. The chapter uses this framework to mine a case study for insights into factors contributing to the failure of a complex, sociotechnical system, one resulting in numerous deaths and other tragic consequences.
