Root Cause Analysis: Reduce the Risk of Future Accidents Using OSHA's Incident Investigation Process

Webinar: ID# 1025130
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
One of the most critical parts of a workplace safety program lies in performing a thorough investigation into why an accident or incident occurred to prevent future accidents that could result in the same or similar outcomes.

Workplace accident investigation processes and procedures to determine root causes should be methodical and comprehensive, and traditional root cause analysis and OSHA's incident investigation processes meet these objectives. When properly structured, implemented, and followed, both approaches, especially when combined, have proven to be effective and efficient methods for performing investigations and reducing future accidents.

Join us to learn how to identify the true root causes of accidents, develop effective programs to address these causes, use root cause analysis successfully when performing an OSHA incident investigation, and ensure that your control strategies are effective over the long term.

You'll learn:
  • How to use the root cause analysis and OSHA's incident investigation processes as effective tools for accident investigations
  • Tips for avoiding bias in the incident investigation process and ensuring you go "deep" enough to accurately identify root causes
  • How a good root cause investigation can build employee support and "buy in" for safety initiatives and improve your EHS culture
  • Examples of how root cause analysis and OSHA's incident investigation process have successfully been used to identify incident casual factors-many of which are overlooked or missed-and how to work them into your existing accident and incident investigation process
  • Key "why" questions that are fundamental to both approaches for determining root cause, and how to incorporate the questions into your process to achieve the maximum benefit and uncover critical causal factors that should be addressed to avoid future similar incidents and accidents
  • How "cause and effect" applies to real-life workplace accidents and incidents
  • The training process to set up for those performing root cause analysis investigations and OSHA incident investigations-and who the permanent and transitory members of the team should be and why
  • Recommendations on how to obtain feedback so you can be sure your accident investigation process achieves excellent results
  • How to use the results and findings of your accident investigation processes to the maximum benefit especially for establishing and completing corrective actions (CA) to avoid incidents and accidents in the future
