Preventing major accidents - changing business as usual
by Ingrid Årstad; Terje Aven
International Journal of Business Continuity and Risk Management (IJBCRM), Vol. 10, No. 2/3, 2020

Abstract: In this article, we examine the recommendation to change business as usual in the aftermath of the deepwater horizon disaster. We address the risks associated with risk management practices and their improvement and propose a framework for questioning the foundations of risk management practices, to clarify in which direction business as usual needs to change. This framework helps identify eventual blind zones in risk management practices and vicious cycles that may prevent their improvement. It is intended to provide a structured approach for ensuring that the risk management repertoire reflects current knowledge about major accidents.
