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 identifying underlying causation.

The course ties together many strands of the safety management process including analysing the impact of human factors, organisational failure areas and decision making factors.  Delegates will be encouraged to correctly identify the causal factors that have led to loss.  The system that is used produces evidence / data 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 good evidence gathering and analytical processes using techniques acceptable to the highest legal and academic standards.

Delegates 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)
Action at the scene
Issues surrounding the investigation of major events
The influence of human factors (Error, violation and belief)
The effects of PACE Investigative procedure
Fatal accident investigation policy production
The need and role of competent criminal legal advisors
The role of criminal and civil law
Interviewing and statement construction
Statement – legal conventions
Analysing Human Factors
Analysing data and statements
Identifying underlying causation
The role of executive management  

This is not an exhaustive list

The course is aimed at identifying causal failure that has led to four main areas of loss, these being ‘personal injury’, environmental damage, reputation impact and asset loss.  Although normally run over four days the course can be spread over two 2 day sessions.  Although not ideal some organisations find that this fits better with staffing requirements and organisational needs.
