Intelex and TapRooT® Partner to Offer In-Depth Root Cause Analysis

August 14th, 2018 by

In this video, hear about TapRooT®’s recent partnership with Intelex Technologies, a leading global provider of cloud-based Environmental, Health, Safety and Quality (EHSQ) management software. The integration of Intelex Technologies with TapRooT® allows customers to enter an injury in Intelex, perform a detailed root cause analysis using TapRooT®, and capture the result of the root cause analysis within Intelex. Customers are able to leverage Intelex’s powerful reporting and analytics foresight on injury and root cause data, ultimately producing better decisions and reducing the risk of repeat incidents, injuries and illnesses. The integration will also remove the administrative and record keeping hassle of managing two disparate incident and root cause analysis tools.

About the partnership, TapRooT®’s Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Dan Verlinde said, “We’re excited to establish a partnership with Intelex. TapRooT® and Intelex both create safer work places and help companies achieve operational excellence—that’s why this was an obvious opportunity to collaborate. This partnership will allow our joint customers to realize an integrated Environmental Health and Safety and Root Cause Analysis solution, while reducing duplicate effort.” And, Kristen Duda, Vice President, Strategic Alliances and Partnerships at Intelex, observed of the new integration, “This partnership provides customers with an industry-leading, integrated solution for taking their injury and root cause analysis data to the next level. By leveraging Intelex and TapRooT®, customers can drive impactful proactive safety decisions.”

What Are SnapCharT®s and Why Are They Important?

July 23rd, 2018 by

TapRooT®’s systematic process for finding the root causes of problems is used around the world to investigate and fix all categories of mission-critical issues, problems, and potential incidents. The first steps of the TapRooT® process are planning the investigation, collecting information, and understanding what happened. The investigator draws a SnapCharT® to understand what happened and to organize the information about what happened. In this Facebook Live session, you will learn more about the value and vital importance of SnapCharT®s from TapRooT® professionals Benna Dortch and Dave Janney.

Watch the session here in Vimeo.

TapRooT® has special tools—such as the Root Cause Tree® and TapRooT® Root Cause Tree Dictionary—to help investigators find root causes of Causal Factors. Our books and training through our custom courses, software and webinars, and TapRooT® professionals will educate, facilitate, and guide you through investigations into the root causes of human performance problems.

Recently, on TapRooT®’s Facebook Live, we learned that only through effective listening will you learn to pick up on the “right” questions to ask in your investigations. TapRooT® Instructor Barb Carr gave us a beginning point:”The first question is the only one you need to know going in: ‘Tell me, from start to finish, what you observed the day of the incident.’” Barb also advises that the next step is to “sit back, listen, and identify which follow-up questions need to be asked.”

Since our listening skills develop with practice, everyone can use help becoming better investigators. Use the video and Vimeo below, featuring TapRooT® professionals Benna Dortch and Barb Carr, to review your skills:

Monday Accident & Lessons Learned: Fatal Accident While Unloading a Truck

July 9th, 2018 by

WKBW TV reported that two employees were killed when a stack of Corian counter tops that weighed 800 pounds per slab (11 slabs total) fell on them. The accident occurred at 1:30 a.m. and the employees were pronounced dead at the scene.

The company issued a statement that said:

“We’re saddened to report that a tragic accident occurred this morning at our facility in Lockport, NY that resulted in the death of two of our colleagues. We’re working with our safety team and local law enforcement to understand the circumstances under which this tragedy occurred. Our deepest sympathies are with their families and our Lockport team members.”

OSHA will be conducting an investigation of the deaths. OSHA has investigated two other serious injuries at XPO facilities elsewhere in New York state.

What was the Hazard in this accident?

The heavy, high-piled load.

Who were the targets?

The two employees.

What were the Safeguards?

From the newspaper articles, we don’t know.

We also don’t know any of the reasons for the Safeguard’s failure.

The root cause analysis will have to determine the Safeguards, why they failed, and if they were sufficient. (Do we need additional Safeguards?)

In the TapRooT® System, a SnapCharT® would be used to collect and organize the information about what happened.

Then the failed Safeguards would be identified.

Next, the failed Safeguards (Causal Factors) would be analyzed to find their root causes using the Root Cause Tree® Diagram.

Once the root causes for all the Safeguards were found, the team would start developing corrective actions.

The Safeguards would be reviewed to see if after they were strengthened, if they would be adequate. If they would not be adequate, either additional Safeguards would be developed or the process could be modified to reduce or remove the hazard. For example, stack the counter tops no more that 16 inches high.

To improve the Safeguards that failed, you would address each of the root causes by developing SMARTER corrective actions using the Corrective Action Helper® Module of TapRooT® Software.

What is a SMARTER corrective action?

Specific

Measurable

Accountable

Reasonable

Timely

Effective

Reviewed

To learn more about the TapRooT® System, SnapCharT®, Safeguard Analysis, Causal Factors, the Root Cause Tree® Diagram, the Corrective Action Helper® Module, the TapRooT® Software, and SMARTER, attend one of our 2-Day or 5-Day TapRooT® Courses.

One Safeguard Eliminated = Death

I think there was an obvious Safeguard missing. What was it?

Remembering An Accident: Ixtoc I Oil Spill

June 27th, 2018 by

On June 3, 1979 the Ixtoc I ,located in the Bay of Campeche in the Gulf of Mexico, exploded and caught fire at 3:30 AM. The Ixtoc oil spill became one of the largest oil spills in history.

So what happened?..

On June 2nd, the day before the blowout, the drill hit a spot with soft sedimentary soil that caused a bit weight reduction, also known as a break. This break unfortunately, caused a fracture in the wells’ piping that resulted in a complete loss in mud circulation drilling. As PeMex and Sedco argued over the best course of action oil began to build up in the west well column. Once the decision was made to remove the drill it was a little to late. Pressure had built to up extremely high, dangerous, and unstable levels. This caused a surge of mud to race up the drill pipe and spill onto the drilling platform. After the surge of mud multiple safety failures occurred creating a chain of events that resulted in the disastrous blow out.

 

After the blow out the now escaping oil ignited, and once it came into contact with gas fumes from a motor that powered the derrick aboard the platform the Ixtoc exploded at 3:30 am. The fire burned until about 10:00 am the next day. The fire caused the Sedco 135 drilling tower to collapse leading to the total loss of the drilling rig. Oil continued spilling out of the destroyed well for a total of 290 days, until the well was finally capped on March 23, 1980.

Major disasters are often wake-up calls for how important it is to ensure that they never happen again.

TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis is taught globally to help industries avoid them. Our 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Training offers advanced tools and techniques to find and fix root causes re-actively and help identify precursors that could lead to major problems.

Our 5-day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Training equips your team to recognize critical precursors. Find and fix the root causes of a major accident using all of the essential TapRooT® techniques plus advanced tools to analyze problems, and find root causes that you previously would have overlooked before they become a major crisis. Onsite training is available for 10 or more.
