Costa Concordia Error Chain Dissected

[LEFT]For anyone who has ever heard the theory of an error chain and has also heard of the disaster of the cruise ship [I]Costa Concordia[/I], the following paper from Capt. Antonio Di Lieto is most enlightening. It is common knowledge that human error appears to be the ultimate cause of the grounding and capsizing of [I]Costa Concordia[/I] near Giglio Island in the Mediterranean. The precise analysis of the safeguards normally in place to prevent such a disaster and their subsequent breakdown is sure to be taught in classrooms for years to come.

Costa Concordia – Anatomy of an Organisational Accident

Thank you to Capt. Di Lieto and the University of Tasmania for providing this excellent paper.

[I]Madden Maritime continues to provide access to online industry magazines and a wide range of maritime industry information. Direct access to Nautical Institute Alert! Bulletins and VodCasts has recently been added, along with a growing range of safety and training information.[/I]

Thanks for your interest in my paper.
I have just published a book about the Costa Concordia accident and the lessons we need to learn from it.

I look forward to receiving your feedback
Antonio Di Lieto
