The time has come for a new era that better understands human error in the context of work, and the overriding importance of improved work design; design that is tolerant of human error and allows humans who make mistakes or become confused to fail safely. It is a challenge to think broader and react less. He tells the how and why of "old view" sociotechnical embeddedness and reveals why its usefulness has diminished … Sidney writes in such a way that the whole book becomes an example of applied "local rationality". Then he presents a clear story about why these feelings might be preventing us from producing the very changes that are needed to move to the next level of safe operations.
He probes us to explore what fundamentally makes safety such an elusive challenge and what makes it different from other sciences.
This book is very timely against the strengthening tide of criminalization of failure — it counters by providing a sound perspective on system complexity and foreseeability — it recognizes that ethics have taken a back seat to safety over the bureaucratic control it so often has become.
WorkSafeBC "… Sidney has so thoroughly exposed the philosophical derailment caused by a modernist-only agenda that to continue to go down that track would be logically pathetic.

He cleverly explains why all future thinking about human error must shift from a discourse on the complicated to a discourse on the complex. This book is a must read for every student in collegiate aviation programs around the world. Hubbard, Ed. The comprehensive nature of the approach adopted in this book is based on both a strong historical understanding of the topic as well as an impressive appreciation of the important philosophical underpinnings of system safety efforts. Dekker has laid a strong historical and philosophical foundation on which he builds operationally relevant guidance about sense-making in complex adaptive systems.
The result is challenging and surprising, And at last there is one book that brings the various strands of these influences into what we call today safety science.
Dekker's reasoning is amazingly easy to follow, especially when he is challenging various folk models, which are often strongly incorporated in our thinking. The history of safety science and of role of human in systems is pictured masterfully. But the main strength is that it offers smooth intellectual ride from "stone-age" safety thinking to resilience engineering. Of course, smooth and comfortable for readers, for the world of safety is a struggle. But at least there is a inspiration.

Unable to find another job cartooning, Bagley went to work designing cheese labels and hot dog packages for seven years. As a missionary in Virginia, Val Chadwick Bagley served as the mission public relations director and cartoonist. Instead, with the help of a contact he made at Covenant Communications while designing cheese labels, Bagley drew the pictures for a coloring book back in , his first job for Covenant Communications.
That partnership continues to this day. Bagley, however, draws a fine line with his cartoons when it comes to the sacred aspects of the gospel. Along with publishing his cartoons in the New Era and the Friend , Bagley has illustrated more than products—including books, card games, and coloring books—for Covenant Communications that have contributed to over 1 million products.
His newest publication is a Sunday activity book that includes dot-to-dots, mazes, coloring pages, seek and find, crafts, and games. After 40 years of drawing cartoons for the New Era, Bagley has no plans to slow down or stop drawing the cartoons that generations of Latter-day Saint youths and adults have come to love.
New Thoughts on Leaders in the New Era
This is a standout show. Clever, funny and serious. The show addresses the most important issue of our time in an allegorical way, and with technical brilliance. As others have said, it is not about how quickly you "get it", there is much more here than a simple trick.

I disagree with previous reviewers who questioned the pace. It is an elegaic as well as a meditative and thoughtful show, and the second half was perfect in providing appropriate space to the audience for for that as well as to admire the technical skill and the little jokes arising from the format.
I can't help but feel those who thought it was all obvious have either seen too many shows over the last fortnight and are now merely surfing, or else have no deep understanding of theatre. It's obvious what's going on from the first few seconds, which makes it quite impressive to watch - particularly one performer who's an exceptional physical actor. What we don't need is an entire second half of that essentially explains the first half. Frankly, if you did not get the gags and the point the first time around the Fringe may not be for you.
This has to be one of our picks of The Fringe. To tell you how it works would be to spoil it. However the clue to how the piece will unfold is in its palindromic title - something you can read backwards as well as forwards. This is a wonderful idea, perfectly executed. The pacing is, I would suggest.

As the second half of the piece unfolds there is a real sense of anticipation as the audience around you starts to understand what is unfolding. The 'story' itself is simple.

The message is also profound. However it is gently, colourfully and beautifully delivered. The show is clearly selling out - get your ticket before it does. I disagree with Philip and agree with Jazza. And I don't think that disliking the show has anything to do with not getting it. It was quite obvious what they were doing and what they were trying to achieve. But for us halfway through it just became a bit dull. A great truly great concept, very well acted and the first 40 minutes or so were quite alright.
But for us it felt the show was a bit too long and it dragged a bit. I also prefer Ontroerend Goed's previous work to this. This is a piece of genius. Believe me, you will. Not sure what we were supposed to think and take away beyond the obvious. But do go and see it for its technical brilliance. They start with the familiar creation myth, subversively reinterpreted. Eve pre-dates Adam, who picks the apple and tempts her with it, no doubt then blaming her for his own action and inventing a serpent to compound the deceit.
We end there too — perhaps.
