    Abstract

    The Edge Hill railway accident occurred on Sunday 9 May 1999 in Liverpool, England. An Engineers' scrap train struck a Plant Quality Supervisor. This paper presents some preliminary results of a systemic analysis of the accident. The methodology has been to compare the features of the Edge Hill accident with the structural organization (i.e. systems 1-5) of a Railway Systemic Safety Management System (RSSMS) model. The findings are related to causal factors of failure of systems 1-5 as well as missing channels of communication amongst those involved in the maintenance work. © 2006 Taylor & Francis Group.
