In Occupational Risk Control you will find Derek Viner's wealth of experience used to its fullest. He presents a coherent and scientific theoretical basis for, and a practical understanding of, the prediction and management of accidents in the industrial and commercial worlds. The author spans ideas formed between the industrial revolution and the present day, but focuses on more recent theoretical developments specifically in defence and petro-chemical systems. He argues that the consequences of the absence of a holistic approach is the tendency for regulators to form (misinformed) theory on which to base legislation and the prevalence of commercial systems leading to disparate efforts by different industries. The net effect of this is seen in disasters of the magnitude of the Gulf of Mexico explosion and oil spill.
