Technical Disasters

Technical disasters occur either due to the failure of a man-made technical appliance, or due to human failure in monitoring these appliances. They can result in significant damage either to human beings – the case for example, in an accident like an airplane crash – or in damage to the environment, and thereby indirectly affecting human beings as well.

The term describes the origin of the disaster, not the result.
