A Systems Perspective STAMP is an acronym that stands for Systems Theoretic Accident Model and Processes. It is a new way to break down and analyze accidents. Instead of analyzing parts of the system, it analyzes the whole system. Like most systems, STAMP attempts to reduce or eliminate risks by filling in the gaps that might not be seen or fixed by the other models. This model is broken down into two parts, the first is system development and the other is for operations. According to STAMP, “system accidents occur not because of failures, but because constraints were not successfully enforced…and reducing the margins of safe operation.” (Leveson, 2004) The NAT model looks at the system faults rather than the human ones. Basically, the system is at fault, because the failures are not predictable, and therefore become inevitable. As I have stated previously, HRT is the opposite of NAT, whereas the humans are the center of creating safety and resilience and can get better with time and practice. With this system they prepare for the worst, but they also try to avoid these hazards. This is something we called at my last job, the “hidden dragon.” We figure out what needs to be done, we look at the safest way to accomplish the task

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
