At work, make sure you checked all safety aspects before proceeding with a job. actually used to analyse and explain accidents and failures did not develop in a similar way. The result is that safety thinking and safety practices in many ways have reached an impasse. This was the primary driver for the development of resilience engineering in the first decade of this century (e.g., Hollnagel, Woods & Leveson, ).

When electrical faults occur, the electrical system is subjected to both thermal and magnetic forces. These forces can severely. Safety risk management is a careful examination of what, in your work, could cause harm, so that you can weigh up whether you have taken enough precautions, or should do more to prevent harm.

PROCEDURAL SAFETY. Nuclear safety is defined by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as "The achievement of proper operating conditions, prevention of accidents or mitigation of accident consequences, resulting in protection of workers, the public and the environment from undue radiation hazards".
