A resilience engineering approach to safety excellence in the maintenance of oil and gas assets. (2016)
Thesis
AMEZIANE, S. 2016. A resilience engineering approach to safety excellence in the maintenance of oil and gas assets. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The established approach to safety management has failed to handle socio-technical systems that have become more complex. The main argument is this approach is based on assumptions that systems are protected against accidents by barriers (well-traine...
