Why do “accidents” happen? Companies struggle to understand incidents, especially when a robust EHS reporting and incident investigation system is not in place. Most often, incidents are addressed at a superficial level, addressing only the immediate cause. Surprisingly, too many EHS professionals consider “human error” to be a valid cause.
Each occurrence that results in loss of property, human injury or illness or impact to the environment, is usually a result of multiple causes. When examined carefully, all incidents lead to lessons learned and actions to minimize hazards by addressing the event’s various root causes.
This course will cover the basic data compilation that is necessary to conduct a thorough investigation, and the various techniques possible to uncover the root causes of an incident. The course will also cover best practices in EHS report management, such as the use of integrated database systems, and how to ensure data quality.
