The Joint Chemical Engineering Committee (JCEC) Queensland warmly welcomes you to participate in the discussion on supportive safety decision-making by studying the structure of causal networks.
Have you ever wondered how to get the best use out of your accident investigations? How to get the most useful set of lessons learned?
Ben Seligmann will present the outcomes of some research that explores this topic from two angles. Firstly, is there a link between the style of investigation method chosen, and the types of lessons learned identified? If so, then we should think carefully about which method to choose. But how do we do that? What are some principles upon which we can choose an investigation method to increase our chances of getting the most useful set of lessons learned?
The second part of the presentation explores what type of method, and combination of methods, can yield richer accident descriptions, likely enabling you to generate more useful lessons learned.
