Perspectives on Systems Safety Engineering
• “As our technology expands, as our wars multiply, and as we invade more and more of nature, we create systems – organizations, and the organization of organizations – that increase our risk for the operators, passengers, innocent bystanders, and for future generations.” – Charles Perrow, Normal Accidents “Although many designers can appreciate the difficulty of creating designs without hazards or with effective guards, few designers have a basis (or the expertise) to understand the complexities of designing a warning.” – Ward Allen, “What do design engineers really know about safety?”

“If a sufficient number of management layers are superimposed on top of each other, it
