We identified 23 different accident and project failure causes and 16 different recommended remedial actions across the 63 cases. Our cause-recommendation network shows how the causes are linked to each other and to the recommendations. This supporting data for our journal paper provides over 900 specific examples of how these causes manifested in failures, and over 600 specific examples of the associated recommended remedial actions, as well as the references and models we used.
