Monday Accident & Lessons Learned – What To Do When the Facts Don’t Agree

A South African web site reported on the trial after a refinery accident. The trial took place three years after the accident and the accident investigator admitted under oath that the accident investigation had never been completed.

The story said:

“Kgele Mathiba, the investigator, said the report was never completed because there were too many conflicting versions of events and opinions as to who was accountable.”

Read the story and give me your best ideas for how you would handle this type of difficult investigation. (Use the “Comments” link below.)
