Root cause Analysis- Facilitator : Ron C McKinnon

Introduction

																		One of the biggest failings in the safety profession is effective accident and high potential near miss incident investigation. Generally, accident investigations are carried out poorly and are mostly fault finding exercises. This sends a negative message to the workforce, and constantly reinforces the fallacy that management is always almost perfect, and never do anything wrong. It is always the injured employee who is at fault. Effective investigations get to the root causes of the system breakdown that caused the accident, or near miss incident. Sometimes this opens a can of worms!
																	

Program Objectives


																		
This workshop is facilitated by using participation and group activities as a foundation for hands-on learning by doing, partaking and questioning.
The objectives of this workshop are to:
•	Explain the importance of accident and near miss incident investigation.
•	Teach how to investigate accidents and undesired events.
•	Clarify how to identify the immediate and root causes of an accident.
•	Explain what remedial measures are.
•	Show how to get to the accident facts.
•	Explain what happens after an accident.
•	Teach attendees how to score a completed accident investigation form.
•	Revisit the rules and golden rules of accident and near miss incident investigation.
•	Teach how to interview accident victims.
•	Show how a thorough investigation sometimes opens a can of worms.
The workshop includes:
 
•	A comprehensive workshop book
•	Attendee participation exercises
•	The hands-on “Impala Platinum” case stud
•	Ranking of accuracy of accident investigation forms
•	How to identify high risk acts and conditions
•	Risk assessment exercises
•	Round table discussions
•	Witness interviews (Role play)

																	

Program Contents

																		
The objective of this workshop is to teach the cause, effects and control of all undesired events by applying lessons learned from effective accident near miss incident investigations. The attendees will participate in an actual hands-on case study investigation which will enable them to carry out effective investigations at their workplace. The workshop teaches how to find the facts of the event rather than to merely identify the faults of people.

																	

Assessment and Certification

																		
On successful completion of the workshop, the participant will receive an attendance certificate from American Society of Safety Professionals. 
																	

Target Audience

																		
Supervisors and front line management often have to investigate accidents in their own divisions and this workshop will equip them with the tools and knowledge to enable them to do so effectively. Safety professionals will also benefit from this “out of the box” approach to investigations.

Keynote 1: INSPIRING SAFETY EXCELLENCE- Facilitator : Ron C. McKinnon

Introduction

																		
Safety excellence is when an organization’s safety culture is based on a strong foundation of updated safety philosophy. The excellence is driven by an active safety policy, and maintained by a risk-based, management-led, audit-driven safety management system (SMS). Visible management leadership, and the practice of applying management principle, are prime factors in enhancing safety excellence.

																	

Program Objectives


																		
Excellence in safety can only be achieved by having the basic building blocks of a safety culture in place. Sometimes, this means reverting to the basics of safety, and focusing on implementing them, rather that measuring efforts by using downstream indices.Safety excellence is hard to achieve, but by applying basic concepts of safety philosophy, an organization can greatly improve their safety status. Excellence starts with getting the basics right.

																	

Program Contents

																		
The seven steps to safety excellence, in summary, are:

1.	The safety philosophy
2.	The safety policy
3.	The safety management system
4.	Participation by all in safety
5.	Visible felt management leadership
6.	The physical workplace
7.	Confidence in promoting safety

Keynote 2: The Right Culture as the Foundation of Process Safety Excellence- Facilitator : David A. Moore

Introduction

																		
Many organizations are recognizing the importance of Process Safety Management (PSM) and the need to set performance targets to world class “operational excellence” to succeed - or even to survive.

What has been lacking is a clearly defined process for focusing on the underlying PSM culture that is necessary to facilitate the management system to be effective and to have a breakthrough to the next level of performance. 


																	

Program Objectives


																		
AcuTech mapped key PSM culture references and helped frame a new model of essential elements of a PSM culture. These formed the basis of a holistic model including the most important factor of a principle addressing Leadership and Process Safety as a Core Value. 

Key to the success of a PSM culture improvement initiative is the assessment of the current status of the program and a means of continually evaluating the results on a semi-quantitative scale. AcuTech developed a set of measurable attributes for each of the ten elements and then assessed the operation at the management, group, and individual level to determine the degree of variation from these principles. This was used to develop a workplan for improvement based on a scoring system to allow for the site to benchmark their performance with others. The resulting assessment was done in conjunction with a more traditional PSM audit and the additional PSM culture assessment was shown to provide more insight to the underlying reasons to explain the management systems audit results. 

AcuTech believes a new focus on PSM culture will prove to be an invaluable means of achieving excellence in PSM.
