Some reflections on pre- and post- accident analysis for water transport: A case study of the Eastern Star accident

Abstract : In the literature, research on pre-accident and post-accident analysis has been reported extensively. The former falls into the category of risk analysis to identify the potential hazards and the consequences, so that decisions can be made to take appropriate preventive and mitigation measures. The latter amounts to accident investigation for learning lessons and finding solutions. This paper uses the catastrophe of Cruiser Eastern Star in 2015 as a case study to analyze some typical accident models, including the Swiss Cheese Model, AcciMap, Stamp, FRAM, etc. By comparison, pros and cons of each perspective are identified. Overall common challenges for all methods are pointed out and a reflection is offered with respect to the added value of complementing the analysis under a resilience perspective, to enhance preparedness for unknown adverse events.
