Would be nice to give a little credit at least to Sydney Dekker, especially since you mention one of his books "Just Culture".
The Field Guide to Human Error is also an excellent eye opener, and to really rub it in take a read of Dietrich Dorners book The Logic of Failure.
These have been around some time, and have a huge impact on how we can choose to operate IT systems safely.

Not properly linked from the menus, had to spin up a 'default sql instance' on cloud in order to use _any_ sql.
