EVENT INVESTIGATION TRAINING COURSE
for Root Cause Analysts/ Rooticians
In this comprehensive five-day, Phoenix-based course, participants will learn and use proven techniques used by high reliability organizations (HROs) for conducting focused and effective causal analysis reports for events, conditions or trends that have high consequences and/ or high significance outcomes.
What We Cover:
Planning an Evaluation
Questions for Insight
Extent of Condition/ Extent of Cause
The Incident in the Course
The instructors have developed a detailed scenario for the participants to investigate. Information is provided to the participants in a framework that simulates a typical RCA environment. The instructors provide several root cause analysis tools/ methods. The participants will use referenced root cause reports to identify the strengths and weaknesses in the analysis and those documents. The participants are provided with the outline for a root cause analysis report, but given the time restraints of 5-days, the teams prepare and present to the workshop an executive-level briefing report on their investigation, including the causal factors, and SMART Corrective actions.
Who Should Attend:
Anyone responsible for conducting, leading, mentoring, sponsoring, reviewing, or approving event investigations/causal analyses in any industry will benefit from this course.
In particular, this course is designed for individuals responsible for causal analysis in high-hazard industries/ HROs and industrial sectors such as commissioning, decommissioning, mining, construction, chemical and petro-chemical industries, utilities, transportation, medical, waste collecting, electric power production, nuclear power, radiation protection, radioactive material handling (all classes), manufacturing and production facilities, laboratories, and national defense.
Our approach can be used to investigate any event for which the adverse consequences can be defined. “If the pain is describable, the Phoenix Method is applicable.”
