5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for Judges, Doctors & Pilots, 11 Jun 2008
This review is from: Just Culture: Balancing Safety and Accountability (Paperback)
A really thought provoking book. Mr. Dekker peels off another layer in our understanding of why humans make mistakes, and why the "sue them"- culture in the long run will not provide better safety in safety critical business' as hospitals and aviation.
A must read for people involved in litigation, hospital staff and aviation people.

This review is from: Just Culture: Balancing Safety and Accountability (Paperback)
This publication is essential reading for all those involved in safety management. It gives an ideal overview of the concept of a "Just Culture" and is very easy (and accurate) reading for anyone new to the risk and safety business. A very useful handbook for training and promoting the most modern form of thinking in safety management within high risk operations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Culture, 21 April 2010
This review is from: Just Culture: Balancing Safety and Accountability (Paperback)
Very good, he furthers a number of issues from his last book, "The Field Guide to Understanding Human Error" which was possibly his best from my view point in its applicability to my work.

However this is definately worth the read and it examines a number of questions that many of us face each day and how thin that dividing line is normal operation and an error scenario. Worth looking at Reason the Human Contribution as well. However his field guide is a must to any one involved in Error & HF

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than common sense about accidents, 21 April 2010

This review is from: Just Culture: Balancing Safety and Accountability (Paperback)
This book does exactly what it claims on the cover - it balances safety and accountability. It is written in an accessible way with examples from safety-critical organizations that illuminate the adverse consequences leading from a blame culture. The author provides a perspective on accidents and safety that shows that although the proximate cause of an accident is only the last link in a chain of actions (or inaction,) in many cases a single individual is made to carry "the moral and explanatory load of a system failure" and that this is both unjust and antithetical to organizational learning.
