The Three Sixty Safety systems model has been developed as a way to understand a process of accident prevention, causation and response. Systems theory dates from the thirties and forties and was a response to the limitations of classic analysis techniques in coping with the increasingly complex systems. The safety systems approach focuses on systems taken as a whole, requiring all subsystems operating simultaneously not on the parts taken separately. It assumes that some properties of systems can only be treated adequately in their entirety, taking into account all facets and relating the social to the technical aspects. These system properties derive from the relationships between the parts of systems: how the parts interact and fit together. Thus, the Three Sixty Safety systems approach concentrates on the analysis and design of the whole as distinct from the components or the parts. When practicing a systems approach to safety it is imperative that all parts of the system are operating simultaneously and that no one part is omitted. Much like a human being, when one part of the body (a critical organ) is not working omitted the physical body suffers and eventually fails or dies.
