2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training

The 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Course focuses on the essential TapRooT® techniques needed to investigate a precursor incident. The 5-Step investigation process simplifies TapRooT® to make the investigation efficient yet effective. The training focuses on understanding what happened, identifying Causal Factors, analyzing the Causal Factors using the Root Cause Tree®, and developing effective fixes using the Corrective Action Helper® Module.

Attendees should bring safety incidents or quality issues from their facility for a team exercise. These may be either written reports or they may have knowledge of an incident with no written report. We divide into teams of 2-4 people and have each team analyze a different problem during the course.
