On February 21, 2017, H-Net Council voted to de-commission H-Risk-and-Safety. The network has been largely unused and ran without editors an extended period of time. Rather than continuing attempts to revive an unused network, we suggest propsective subscribers choose some of H-Net's other larger and more active networks in related fields from among our 180+ networks.

Feel free to contact me with any questions about this decommissioning.


All the best,

Patrick Cox

H-Net Vice-President for Networks

Indicative Bibliography

This bibliography is a work in progress. We welcome additions and further suggestions. We have tried to include items that are broadly ‘on topic’ – so, including things that relate indirectly to the history of safety, accidents and risk, and including work from disciplines beyond history


Initially compiled by Mike Esbester, Amy Gangloff, Bill Luckin, and Jameson Wetmore.
