Customer Review

on July 16, 1998
Normal Accidents is the best summary of major industrial accidents in the USA that I have encountered. It is written in a factual and technically complete style that is particularly attractive to anyone with a technical background or interest. I was able to read a borrowed copy from a colleague a few years ago when I was appointed as chairman of the safety committee at a manufacturing facility where workers had potential for exposure to toxic gasses, high voltage, x-radiation, and other more everyday industrial hazards. The author's insight is right on target for achieving a workable understanding of the cause and prevention of disaster events. I wanted to buy copies for all our engineering managers and safety committee members, but the book is out of print. It is my fond hope that the author will write an updated version with analysis of more recent events as well as the well-chosen accidents in the previous edition. For any safety related product or process de! ! signer, this book is a must read! For any technically cognizant reader, this book is a delight to read, even if it is a little scary in its implications. For everyone else, it has some really interesting historical stories.
