Bernhard Wilpert

As mentioned in a prior post we will be highlighting some of the work of the late Bernhard Wilpert, a leading figure in research on the role of human behavior in high reliability organizations. 

Professor Wilpert emphasized the interaction of human, technology, and organizational dynamics.  His tools for human factors event analysis have become the standard practice in German and Swiss nuclear plants.  He is the author of several leading books including Safety Culture in Nuclear Power Operations; System Safety: Challenges; Pitfalls of Intervention; Emerging Demands for Nuclear Safety of Nuclear Power Operations: Challenge and Response; and Nuclear Safety: A Human Factors Perspective.

Professor Wilpert was also a principal contributor to the LearnSafe project conducted in Europe from 2001 – 2004.  See the following link for information about the project team and its results and look to us for future posts on the LearnSafe research.
