about

Drawing on extensive and detailed fieldwork within airlines-an industry that pioneered near-miss analysis- this book develops a clear set of practical implications and theoretical propositions regarding how all organizations can learn from 'near-miss' events and better manage risk and resilience.
Carl Macrae is a social psychologist, Senior Research Fellow in the Centre for Patient Safety and Service Quality at Imperial College London, UK, and a Health Foundation Improvement Science Fellow.
