21  Incident Investigation and Root Cause Analysis

February 10-11, 2008 - 1.4 CEUs, 2.0 IH CM Points #08-2206, 0.88 CHMM CMP

Seminar Description:
All accidents, injuries, illnesses and near-miss incidents should be investigated to determine the cause(s) so that appropriate corrective (remedial) action can be taken to prevent similar events. In addition, OSHA has requirements for investigating certain jobrelated injuries and illnesses. Under OSHA 1910.119 Chemical Process Safety Management Standard, all incidents that did or could have resulted in the catastrophic release of highly hazardous chemicals or catastrophic explosions must be investigated by a team within 48 hours. This two-day seminar will teach participants how to promptly conduct thorough investigations and identify the root cause(s) of the event.

Learn to
Interview witnesses and gather facts
Identify the injury or loss event, the accident event and preceding events associated with the incident
Draft a report and document, preserve and maintain chain of custody of photos and critical evidence
Use a causal factors guide to identify all possible causes of the incident and subsequent corrective (remedial) action
Avoid the use of inflammatory and subjective terminology
Set up a system for tracking outstanding recommendations
Document and handle unrelated but important information uncovered in the investigation
