Pre-Summit Course: “What-if” & TapRooT® for Hazard Assessment
The 2-Day What-If & TapRooT® Hazard course is a process hazard analysis course incorporating many of the methodologies used during an incident investigation. The SnapCharT® will be used to map out actions and all the conditions necessary for successful management of change. Using process and instrument drawings, the class will practice using Safeguard analysis to generate the type of thought-provoking questions essential to facilitate a What-If team analysis.
The same process used to develop action items following an incident investigation will be proactively applied. Using the Root Cause Tree® and Root Cause Tree® Dictionary to analyze significant issues, the Corrective Action Helper® Guide will aid in creating an action plan to address potential problems associated with a change in process design.
During the 2-Day What-If course, you will practice the communication skills needed to facilitate a team meeting effectively. The What-If methodology is well-suited for identifying potential hazards when managing change. Incorporating many of the TapRooT® skills proactively in the What-If analysis will keep your incident investigators ready when they need to lead an investigation.
