Who is responsible?

Well, looks like the explosion that killed many people in khayam station in east Province of Khorasan in Iran is simply being fixed up by blaming it on few misrable workers (article in shargh).

When a system is malfunctioning is it only the lowest levels that should be fixed so that the problem would resolve?
Let's assume that the whole catastrophe has just resulted from a simple worker not fixing the brakes correctly, and that nothing else should be taken into account to avoid such a situation. who should be responsible for hiring an irrisponsible person for a potentially important job? what is the reason that he has not paid enough attention to his job? does he feel secure, Is he doing his job willingly?
