By the mid 1980s the Fires Research Station that funded my studies of human
behaviour in fires decided that it had provided what was needed and that they
should not support me to do any further research. So I set about finding other ways
of developing that work. An opportunity was provided by the Insurance Technical
Bureau who wanted to measure the management contribution to risk in industrial
processes (Powell and Canter, 1985). This work did not survive the demise of that
bureau but it did open the door to British Steel, who were interested in ways of
assessing and ultimately improving the attitude of their workforce to safety
