Published works

This section contains a current list of all my published works, most recent first.

View current list of works posted on line that can be viewed now.
      1. Stoop, J. and Benner, L. 2015 What do STAMP-based Analysts Expect from Safety Investigations? describes variations in accident investigation reports and other input data challenges that STAMP/CST analysts need to recognize in selecting candidate accidents for analyses, and options for addressing these challenges. In Procedia Engineering, Volume 128, p 93-102

      2. Benner, L., 2015 Is It Time To Purge Legal Constructs From Safety Investigations? presents arguments for purging detrimental legal constructs from accidental occurrence investigations. See also comments at Safety Differently web site, at Thinking differently about safety investigations

      4. Benner, L. "Standardizing Safety Investigation Inputs to Reduce Risks" argues for a shift from prevention-centric to user-centric safety investigation purposes and for a new non-causal safety investigation paradigm, including investigation data input and integration standards. A slide presentation and movie of the presentation of the paper is also available. 2013 (Jan 14).
