Safety Event Root Cause Analysis

December 5, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm



This workshop provides a tactical approach to identifying the root cause of a safety related event. The instructor will teach participants to apply proven techniques that will help them learn the context of the safety related event. Once participants can understand the context, they have a better chance to influence the future.

How do you put a safety related event in CONTEXT?

Step 1: Start with the Storyboard – Map the critical steps that lead to the safety related event. Tell me what happened that day.
Step 2: Build context for the Root Cause Analysis – The context of the event describes why it made sense to perform that task.
Step 3: Analyze the Facts – To drive sustainable improvement for more than one person, organizations have to identify tools and techniques that will produce safe decisions and judgement.
Step 4: Choose Points of Influence – Where do you have the most influence?  How can leaders in an organization take an inexperienced worker and help them make good decisions?

The benefit of an intuitive root cause analysis process is that it improves organizational tools and techniques that prevent errors in judgement that lead to injuries.  The context of the storyboard will provide insight for a supervisor.
