  • Epilogue

    Engineering has experienced a technological revolution, but the basic engineering techniques applied in safety and reliability engineering, created in a simpler, analog world, have changed very little over the years. In this groundbreaking book, Nancy Leveson proposes a new approach to safety--more suited to today's complex, sociotechnical, software-intensive world--based on modern systems thinking and systems theory. 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. Arguing that traditional models of causality are inadequate, Leveson presents a new, extended model of causation (Systems- Theoretic Accident Model and Processes, or STAMP), then then shows how the new model can be used to create techniques for system safety engineering, including accident analysis, hazard analysis, system design, safety in operations, and management of safety-critical systems. She applies the new techniques to real-world events including the friendly-fire loss of a U.S. Blackhawk helicopter in the first Gulf War; the Vioxx recall; the U.S. Navy SUBSAFE program; and the bacterial contamination of a public water supply in a Canadian town. Leveson's approach is relevant even beyond safety engineering, offering techniques for "reengineering" any large sociotechnical system to improve safety and manage risk.

  • Personal Protection (Safety)

    The main issues regarding electrical safety are the invisible nature of hazardous situations and the element of surprise. One has to anticipate, visualize, and plan ahead for the unexpected and follow all the proper safety rules before an accident to gain confidence in working around electricity. There are several methodologies and personal protective equipment (PPE) available that make working conditions around electrical equipment safe. This chapter explains the common methodologies and safety equipment. There are two aspects of electrical safety; electric shock or current flow through the body and arc???flash or being burned by the heat created by an electrical arc when equipment failure occurs. Construction and maintenance crews work on power lines under???energized and deenergized conditions. Electrical arc???flash hazards are serious risks to worker safety. In most applications, clothing and PPE must be either flame resistant (FR) rated or arc???flash rated. Home safety also involves the awareness of touch and step potentials, arc???flash too.
