Incident Investigation, Human Failure & Cause Tree Analysis
This 2-module online course aims to provide delegates with improved process incident investigation skills by focusing on the key aspects of incident investigation: the need to search for systemic failures; how to diagnose and address human failure; collecting evidence (in particular oral evidence) and identifying root causes using the Cause Tree Analysis technique. The course uses case studies from real incidents to demonstrate the use of the SRK human error taxonomy and the application of Cause Tree Analysis.
By the end of this course, you will:
- understand the multiple purposes of investigations
- understand the causation “domino theory” and the need to search for system failures
- appreciate the different ways humans can fail and how investigations can address these
- understand how to diagnose human error using the SRK model
- understand the challenges in collecting evidence and how these can be addressed
- understand how to apply the Cause Tree (root cause) Analysis technique.
Who is it for?
Managers, supervisors and engineers that have responsibilities for investigating process incidents or who are required to participate in investigations.
What do you get?
