Incident Investigation Good Practices - in association with the Chemical Industries Association
Incident and near miss investigation is an important feedback loop for a company safety management system. Suitably detailed and robust investigations and subsequent follow-up can help prevent the same and / or other similar incidents re-occurring. Taking a step-by-step logical approach to incident investigation, along with use of a Root Cause Analysis (RCA)tool, allows a robustness and rigour to investigation reporting to be introduced.
The course will provide an overview of incident investigation good practices such as;
- The importance of investigating.
- Why you should ideally determine the level of investigation based on incident potential.
- How understanding evidence types and use of a timeline and storyboard can assist the investigative process.
- How to review and use evidence to support RCA and improve the robustness of investigations.
- The importance of getting back to the underlying management system failings to provide wider benefits.
- Why completing actions and sharing lessons learned is the most important part of the incident investigation process.
The incident investigation good practices training will be in the form of a one-day course consisting of presentations, workshop exercises and will provide learners with an understanding of good practices.
