Toolkit:Systems Thinking for Safety/Systems Theoretic Accident Model and Processes (STAMP)
The present article is under construction.Reader enquiries are welcome, contact the editor: firstname.lastname@example.org.
STAMP views accidents as resulting from inadequate control or enforcement of safety-related constraints on the design, development, and operation. Accidents occur when component failures, external disturbances, and/or dysfunctional interactions among system components are not adequately handled.
