On 12th January 2012, the passenger ship Costa Concordia collided with rocks and capsized off the island of Giglio in Italy in what became seen as one of the historic accidents in the maritime industry. A central question for us has been what can we learn from this accident and many such high-profile accidents? Drawing on first-hand (video) interviews with the captain and extensive research into accidents, we have created a documentary-style narrative of this accident.
The workshop will provide an opportunity to put learning into practice through a systematic analysis of the events leading up to, during and after the accident on board the Costa Concordia. A key feature of this workshop is that we get to hear the perspective of the ship captain who was involved in the accident.
- The limitations of existing models and methods in accident investigation and analysis
- The importance of engaging with alternative viewpoints (i.e. cognitive diversity)
- The underlying problems with error detection and error management (i.e. crew resource management)
- The role of expertise in managing risk and safety
- The limits of compliance-based models in risk and safety management
- The role of organisational plans and procedures in managing emergency situations.
The event will be held on Microsoft Teams. A meeting link will be sent out one week prior to the course to all the participants on their registered email address.
