Monday Accident and Lessons Learned – Fire Picture Info

If you thought the pictures were interesting (and you could use them to teach a lesson), wait until you read the additional information about the accidents and the lessons learned for each of the accidents below.

And if reading about accidents makes you think about preventing them, consider attending a TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Course and learn to use advanced root cause analysis to reactively investigate problems or to proactively head them off.

Now for the answers to last weeks pictures…
