This course is aimed at those persons or teams who have responsibility for identifying causation following industrial accidents.  It is likely that the delegate profile will include both safety professionals and managers from all levels of an organisation who are tasked with the ‘causal analysis’ process.

Using a mixture of tried and tested legal and academic processes delegates will be encouraged to correctly identify the causal factors that have led to loss.  The system that is used produces evidence that can allow exposure to civil and criminal litigation to be legally analysed.  The result of working with data collected at this standard is that the organisation involved can feel secure in the knowledge that any change is soundly based in the best evidence gathering and analytical processes.

The principal aims of the course are to provide the skills necessary to gather good data, analyse it using accepted academic systems, identify human factors, organisational failure areas (BRF’s) and underlying causation.  The investigative and analytical processes developed in the course can be used to examine loss in four main organisational event categories; ‘personal injury’, environmental damage, reputation impact and asset loss.

Delegates will cover a number of aspects including:

Understanding corporate motivators
Understanding the accident causation model
The role of BRF’s (Organisational failure areas) and DMF’s (Decision making factors) The influence of human factors (Error, violation and belief)
The need to identify local legal systems
Investigative procedure
Fatal accident investigation policy production
The need and role of competent criminal legal advisors
Interviewing and the recording of information - good data collection
