This course consists of presentations and discussions of foundational ideas, theories, principles and views on accidents, risk and the ability to manage safety in complex systems. Literature pertaining to Normal Accidents Theory (NAT) and Human Reliability Theory (HRT) will be studied in order for students to form a broad but critical understanding of both structuralist and interpretational approaches to understanding risk and safety, accident causation, and complex and safety-critical systems/environments in general.
