SAFETY
Healthy Roots: Root Cause Analysis and
Equipment Failure

Whether an incident impacts a person, the environment or the business itself, regulators request a complete root cause analysis be performed with sustainable hazard elimination or reduction actions to be put in place. Root Cause Analysis Method should be used on low to moderate level near-misses by any employee to lower the probability of a major incident from occurring in the first place

    Chris Vallee,
    Senior Associate System Improvements,

Incident investigation is a formal requirement for high hazard facilities with the aim to learn from each incident and prevent future recurrences. This presentation explains a novel method for incident investigation (BSCAT) that combines the ideas of barrier-based risk assessment with a well-established systems-based root cause analysis method (SCAT).

  • "Trinidad and Tobago’s Disaster Preparedness and Continuity"

Unfortunately, the number and severity of disasters in recent times have overtaxed the best intentions of leaders and planners when it comes to business continuity and information technology. Understandably, needs related to shelter, food, utilities and public safety typically dominate thoughts and plans in times of devastation. However, information technology assets are often nearly as critical to business operations and to the general public, at large. This discussion will focus on lessons learned from recent major disasters as well as those tricky smaller incidents that can still result in significant disruptions
