Abstract [en]

The aim of the article is to describe a set of biases in safety management practices and their possible consequences for safety. We will outline main biases of safety management in four thematic areas: beliefs about individual behavior, beliefs about organizations, safety models and safety management methods. A common theme underlying the biases is a lack of systems view on safety. A systemic safety management takes into account people, technology and organization and their interaction in equal terms. Furthermore, such an approach can shift focus from people to technology to organizational aspects depending on their current safety significance.
