Here is the new information on the class: High Risk Technologies. I’ve included the slides from the first week, and the book. As I mentioned in several emails, the book is Human Safety and Risk Management, 2 ed, by Ian Glendon. I actually received an email from Dr. Glendon about this book. I included the information here. Other books that could be useful but not required are the National Safety Council Book ” Accident Prevention Manual”, 9th ed and “Normal Accidents” by Charles Perrow. (You knew I couldn’t just have one book, right?). In the text (of Human Safety and Risk Management), please read chapter 1, 2, 6, 8 and 9. Chapter 6 has the behavior models. Chapter 1 will provide an overview for the course.
The assignments are 2 papers and the behavior model we’ll discuss in class. The papers are on high risk technologies (current data), 5-7 pages. Please don’t repeat a topic from the IH course. The behavior model is due at the end of the course. If you have questions, please let me know.
Thanks again for enrolling in this course, I think you’ll enjoy it. I plan on making the course interesting and fun.
