Course Overview

Despite all our best efforts, accidents and incidents occasionally occur. These unplanned or undesired events can adversely affect a company’s work operations, including work-related injuries, occupational illnesses, property damage, spills, and fires. Accident investigations are necessary to identify accident causation and ensure the effective implementation of corrective actions. A minor or near-miss incident also requires a thorough investigation as this may reveal significant potential for a future severe incident should the conditions be uncorrected.

The Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Center Extension in Qatar presents this “Root Cause Analysis” course. This course will give attendees an analysis of the root causes of incidents. The training will prove helpful to experienced engineers, safety supervisors, and operating managers committed to safe workplaces. The objective of this course is for the participant to understand root cause incident investigation techniques for chemical process incidents.

Learning Outcomes

This course presents an overview of critical concepts for root cause investigation through a series of class exercises, videos, and discussions. This course is based on investigation guidelines published by the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS), industry practices for root cause analysis, and portions of the National Fire Protection Association 921 Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigations, 2001 edition.
