Leading safety researcher Nancy Leveson stated the following assumption: safety is increased by increasing system or component reliability. If components or systems do not fail, then accidents will not occur. This assumption is one of the most pervasive in engineering and other fields. The problem is that it is not true. Her 'new' assumption is: high reliability is neither necessary nor sufficient for safety. This presentation explores differences between theory and practice when it comes to whether a correlation exists between reliability and safety
