After a long career with the Dow Chemical Company and several years in process safety consulting, I had the privilege of working as an investigator with the U. S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board. During my five years at the CSB, I led four major investigations and participated in a total of nine investigations. Last year I presented a paper on what I learned about the nature of chemical plant incidents. This year I will discuss what I learned about how to conduct an effective investigation. I will discuss ten important factors for effective investigation and will cite examples from the investigations that I was a part of.
