About the event

What?

IPS (Swedish Process Safety Association) and SÄKU (The Swedish Safety Culture Network) are happy to welcome back the well-renowned French safety researcher Jean-Christophe Le Coze to another exclusive webinar!

Read more by clicking on "More info" below.

During this 2-hour session, Jean-Christophe will make a presentation in two parts based around his book “Post Normal Accident. Revisiting Perrow’s classic” (2020). In these two parts he will dissect the last three decades of safety research made on high-risk systems/organisations and also look at where we are now. The presentation will have a certain emphasis on Charles Perrow's safety classic "Normal Accidents" (1984). 

The structure of the presentation will be as follows:

Part 1

  • Historicising safety

- Safety as a product of epochs

- Safety and our contemporary world

  • Thinking safety with the help of sociology

- Turner, Perrow, Vaughan, Hopkins

  • Why does Perrow still matter, 40 years after Normal Accidents, published in 1984?

- Two theses in one book

- An influential sociological analysis

- A complementary author: Hopkins

Part 2

  • Post Normal Accidents in a nutshell: a new mindset for a new world

- Why "Post" in Post NA?

-  Key categories of Post NA…with and beyond Perrow & Hopkins

  • Thinking “safety as strategy”

- Errors from the top

- Case studies: from BP to Boeing...

  •  Safety-critical systems and globalisation

- Global Value Chains: Network failure accidents

- Case studies (continued): from BP to Boeing…

  •  Global risks and safety

- Systemic & existential risks

- Case study: From Fukushima Daïchi to Covid-19…

The event will be held in English.

Warm welcome and hope to see you there!

On May 17 the webinar will be followed up by a workshop based on the "safety as strategy"-topic from the presentation. The workshop will be interactive and go into more depth in this topic where participants will be asked to read a case study in advance.
