There is a marked Newtonian legacy in understanding accidents: risk is located
in components and in the linear progression of failures, producing trajectories
toward failure in which there is a proportionality or symmetry between causes
and effects. • Organizational failures can be seen as the result of a drift—long,
steady declines into greater risk and an erosion of margins. • Organizations drift
into failure by doing what it takes to produce success in a world with limited
resources and ...

But when failures, serious failures, are no longer preceded by serious failures,
predicting accidents becomes a lot more difficult. And modeling them with the
help of mechanistic, structuralist notions may be of little help. The greatest
residual risk in today's safe sociotechnical systems is the drift into failure. Drift into
failure is about a slow, incremental movement of systems operations toward the
edge of their safety envelope. Pressures of scarcity and competition typically fuel
this drift.

These institutions confuse absence of failure with presence of safety. As they
lower margins of safety, they slowly “drift into failure”.7 Mitroff and Alpaslan
surveyed a sample of the largest businesses in the United States about seven
months before, three months after, one year after, and two years after 9/11. Most
of these businesses, particularly if they felt they could be the target of a terrorist
attack, increased their preparations significantly right after the attacks. One year
later, they were ...

He and his brother and sister had drawn brilliantly from an early age, and Kicky
felt strongly that unless he could develop this gift freely, without restriction, in the
city he loved so well, he would never make anything of his life, but would drift into
failure, like his father before him. His mother understood him well enough to
know that this was true, so Kicky, her firstborn and bestbeloved, was given her
blessing to follow the career he had chosen for himself. Back in the Paris he
loved, young ...
