Two Key Publications on High Reliability Organizations and Causal Factors Analysis.

A High Reliability Organization (HRO) is one in which, despite the fact that it deals with hazardous, high consequence operations, it does so successfully. A key attribute of being an HRO is to learn from the organization´┐Żs mistakes. Causal Factors Analysis (CFA) is a key tool to learn systematically from events that occur when HRO efforts fall short.
