The primary cause of this accident is listed as a Field Control Inadequacy because the Victim was a field supervisor who acted in breach of basic safety requirements by poking a mine with a stick, apparently as a joke. The secondary cause is listed as a Management Control Inadequacy because the demining group’s managers are responsible for the selection and training of appropriately responsible field supervisors.
