Who Will Benefit from Attending?

Our workshop equips individuals seeking initial training as analysts, analysts who are already highly experienced, and managers who lead incident analysis teams with knowledge and skills that enable performing more efficient and effective investigations.  Managers who provide oversight for incident analysis programs should also attend.


Our workshop is intended to improve the capability of organizations to solve their most significant and complex problems, thereby improving safety, quality and productivity.
Our workshop integrates human performance fundamentals with proven incident analysis processes and techniques.  Attendees are taught how to perform various analytical techniques and how use of those techniques will lead them to the causes of events, thereby facilitating identification and implementation of corrective actions capable of reducing the risk of incident recurrence.  Topics include:

  • Human performance fundamentals from an incident analysis perspective
  • Managing incident analysis teams and ensuring successful outcomes
  • Applying proven incident analysis processes, tools, and techniques
  • Structured approaches for determining the Extent of Condition and the Extent of Cause
  • Assessing prior occurrences for relevance to the current incident
  • Identifying causal factors that induced the human behaviors and/or equipment failures involved in the incident
  • Identifying contributing factors that allowed the incident to occur and/or increased its significance
  • Developing lean and effective corrective action plans
Workshop attendees will participate in numerous hands-on experiential learning activities based upon actual incidents, including:

  • Determining Human Error Types
  • Interviewing
  • Barrier Analysis
  • Change Analysis
  • Task Analysis
  • Event and Causal Factors Charting
  • Fault Tree Analysis
  • Deviation Analysis
  • Why Analysis
  • Performing Extent of Condition and Extent of Cause Evaluations
  • Corrective Action Plan Development
August 21-24, 2018; 4 days classroom training from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM daily
