Abstract

The chapters in this volume are written on a stand-alone basis
meaning that the chapters can be read in any order. The first 4
chapters focus on theory and method in general with some applied
examples illustrating the methods and theories. Chapters 5 and 6 are
about safety management in the aviation industry with some
additional information about incident reporting in the aviation
industry and the health care sector. Chapters 7 through 9 cover safety
management with applied examples from the nuclear power industry
and with considerable validity for safety management in any
industry. Chapters 10 through 12 cover generic safety issues with
examples from the oil industry and chapter 13 presents issues related
to organizations with different internal organizational structures.

Although the many of the chapters use a specific industry to
illustrate safety management, the messages in all the chapters are of
importance for safety management in any high reliability industry or
risky activity. The interested reader is also referred to, e.g., a
document by an international NEA group (SEGHOF), who is about
to publish a state of the art report on Systematic Approaches to
Safety Management (cf., CSNI/NEA/SEGHOF, home page:
