Need to Write an Incident Investigation Policy?

Have you been tasked to develop an incident investigation policy? People often ask us how to get started when setting up a program for incident investigation, proactive improvement, and root cause analysis. It takes a little work to get it right, but getting it right can reduce incidents and save lives at your facility. It’s important work!

Here are four steps:

1. Attend a 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Course. Anyone writing a company policy should attend this course first because it sets the foundation.

2. Write the investigation policy. See TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Implementation – Changing the Way Your Company Solves Problems for a sample version.

3. Attend the TapRooT® Global Summit. Why? Networking and best practices for continuous improvement.

4. Attend the Pre-Summit TapRooT® Trending to Manage Performance. You need to know about advanced trending techniques to help management improve plant performance by focusing on the right things.

Take these steps to set up an outstanding program, and see how much good it can do for safety, quality, productivity, and equipment reliability at your site.
