If we are to move beyond the primitive simple human error explanations of accident causation, understanding a system’s resilience with our investigative effort might help us better understand how complex systems fail. This presentation discusses a mechanism to examine failed complex socio-technical systems when viewed through a resilience engineering perspective and how adaptation is eventually unable to cope with system pressures thus revealing mechanisms of failure from which we hope to prevent the next accident.
Shawn is a faculty member at Ohio State where he teaches aviation safety, human factors, and accident investigation. Prior, he flew as a Captain with Delta Connection in addition to being extensively involved with ALPA and held positions at all levels within the safety structure.
This presentation was given at the CIEHF event ‘Human Factors in Aviation Safety‘ on 10th November 2015 at the Radisson Blu hotel, East Midlands Airport.
