Co-operation of authorities to prevent major risk: Finnish case study

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference articleScientific

Abstract

Risks associated with new technologies, as well as risks due to new configurations of old technologies, have been linked with recurring major accidents in societies. For example, in Finland, a change in the configuration of the wastewater purification plan in 2004 resulted in around 8000 people succumbing to illness (Heikkilä et al. 2011) and during the year 2010 the new building construction procedures caused risk of collapse and even the collapses of over ten ceilings or roofs in public sport centre buildings (Safety Investigation Authority 2011). This study presents the new multidisciplinary method for authorities to tackle in advance the risks caused by new technologies. It is based on distributed cognition, use of implicit and tacit knowledge and group work. The used tool is based on future wheel method.
