Politicians, regulators and professional bodies have started initiatives to implement these schemes in many different countries. It is time to take a rational look at the limitations of incident reporting.

Others have not listened to the more limited claims made by the operators of these existing systems in aviation and in organizational health and safety applications. </ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
