Investigating beyond Swiss Cheese – CAST Accident Analysis Overview
Learn about the Accident Analysis process based upon STAMP, known as CAST: Causal Analysis based on Systems Theory
Simon Whiteley, a systems safety consultant, who has worked across all parts of the Engineering, Product and Project lifecycle across a variety of industries will present this event:
Traditional approaches to accident investigation & analysis typically treat Accidents as being due to linear chains of events or due to breached barriers.
Unfortunately, the world is a little bit more complicated than that and this is where the Systems Theoretic Accident Model and Processes (STAMP) approach expands upon this traditional view by treating Accidents as complex, dynamic processes.
In this presentation, learn about the Accident Analysis process based upon STAMP, known as CAST: Causal Analysis based on Systems Theory, in the context of an aircraft accident: British Airways Fan Cowl Door Loss (G-EUOE).
This talk will briefly address: Human factors, equipment design, operations and emergency response, along with the broader Systems Thinking aspects that enable the identification of more causes of accidents and opportunities to make Systems safer.
