Investigation of Human and Organizational Factors  (1998)
Abstract Header
It could be said that in complex technological systems such as aviation, accidents do not happen to people, but to entire organisations. There has long been an acknowledgment that system breakdowns or safety occurrences typically reflect not only individual human failings, but also systemic or organisational problems. In recent years there has been a growing awareness that organisational and systemic issues as well as the more traditional human factors, must be considered in an occurrence investigation.
