Product Description

Failures happen and their causes are many. Some are avoidable. Others, consequent on natural disaster, may be unavoidable. However, as a group, failures are not just ‘accidents’. There are common themes and, by studying them, we can learn to minimise the risk of repeats, which is our duty in the cause of ‘safety’. This Text's sections comprise: Introduction; Safety; History; Design and construction failures; Materials; Fire; Human error; Natural disasters; Man-made disasters; Overall lessons and how to avoid failures.
