This podcast explores the concept of organizations as systems, consisting of interconnected subsystems and the challenges and intricacies of managing safety within this complex web of systems. Gain a fresh perspective on incident and accident investigations, and why simply attributing blame to human error may not be sufficient.
We explore the importance of looking beyond surface-level causes and adopting a lateral, holistic approach to understanding system failures. Listeners are encouraged to become systems thinkers, embracing the complexity of their organizations and adopting a more comprehensive approach to safety management. By expanding their understanding of system behavior and interaction, safety professionals can better identify potential risks and devise effective preventive measures.
