Although RCA is a reactive process – meaning it’s performed after the event occurs – once a root cause analysis is done, it takes the shape of a proactive mechanism since it can predict problems before they occur. The process of investigations is a common practice that all environmental and safety professionals are or should be experienced with. Since most incidents can be tied to various contributing factors as well as human error, to make a change towards preventative safety actions you must have a comprehensive RCA process that looks at multiple layers or causalities.
However, there are many different approaches that can help reach a deeper level of investigation to transform your safety program from corrective to preventative. In this webinar we’ll go over the most effective RCA techniques and how you can practically apply them to ensure a comprehensive approach to investigations.
