Abstract

Reckons that industrial crises are triggered by events which are specific and identifiable, and which damage the environment, property, even life. Acknowledges trigger events are most unlikely to occur, often preceded by warning signs indicating problems — but these are frequently ignored because of the perceived unlikelihood of a disaster. Uses a Table, depicting a model of industrial crises, for added emphasis. Argues that industrial crisis cannot be dealt with at the level of single organizations as ultimately it is the economic and cultural environments inside and outside an organization that play crucial roles in preventing disasters.
