Accidents are significant events that trace their roots back to management system failures. They often result from a single failure. That failure however may be a symptom of deeper problems within the operation of a plant or facility. Only with a full understanding of what happened, how it happened and why it happened, can effective remedial actions be taken. Join Incident Investigation expert Brian Kelly for an in-depth look at a look at the systematic process of examining and evaluating the causes of an incident so that recurrence can be prevented.
