Incident Investigation

Is your organisation ready to learn from mistakes?


Learn the core knowledge and skills to be an effective Team Leader or a valuable member of an investigation team.


Using a realistic scenario, delegates will learn the fundamental principles of root cause analysis and put them into practice. They will conduct a thorough investigation, drawing appropriate conclusions and identifying suitable preventative measures.

Working in teams, delegates will create their own timeline and discuss findings. The course is delivered in a way to encourage interaction, which enables delegates to share opinions and ask lots of questions.
