Abstract

Analysis of accidents in socio-technical systems frequently reveals unnoticed obstacles, which have grown to become the main cause of incubation and surprise at failure (Dekker, 2011). Thus far, it has proven to be a challenge to identify those unnoticed obstacles upfront among the tremendous number of events occurring during normal operations. In this article, we describe the usage of weak resilience signals (WRS)(Siegel & Schraagen, 2014), at a rail control post, to reveal obstacles compromising the resilience ...
