COURSE TITLE:  ACCIDENT-INCIDENT SAFETY INVESTIGATOR 3-DAY INTENSIVE TRAINING PROGRAM

INSTRUCTOR:  The course is taught by the recipient of the Transportation Safety Board of Canada’s Excellence in Investigations AwardClinton Marquardt, Accident Investigator & Human Fatigue Specialist

Rail AccidentDESCRIPTION:  The 3-Day intensive Accident-Incident Safety Investigator Training Program provides you with a step-wise methodology to investigate accidents and incidents from a Safety Management Systems (SMS) perspective. The method was modelled after the ISIM methodology used by the Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) and incorporates internationally recognized safety investigation approaches used by the world’s foremost safety boards. The result is a refined and optimized methodology that provides you with a comprehensive and practical approach to conducting accident and incident investigations. The 3-Day Intensive Accident-Incident Safety Investigator Training Program more efficiently trains investigators in a shorter period of time. You won’t be overwhelmed by impractical academic theory and irrelevant material.  Instead, during the hands-on course, Clinton leads you step-by-step through the Critical Incident Investigation Process (CIIP) so that you can explain what happened and why it happened.  The CIIP focusses on understanding the accident from a human factors perspective. It provides both new and experienced investigators with specialized tools to keep the accident reconstruction moving forward even if investigators encounter roadblocks that make it difficult to explain an accident or incident.

The course will provide you with the Critical Incident Investigation Process to follow and a skill-set to facilitate writing reports with strong and accurate conclusions about the risk and causal factors involved in an accident or incident. Participants will learn the material through an engaging use of a case study, safety vignettes and hands-on exercises.

Did you know that most accident investigations do not fix the underlying causes of accidents?

After the training, you will be able to use the respected Critical Incident Investigation Process  (CIIP) to get to the real reason the accident happened. You will know “Why” the accident happened and you will know how to fix it!

When you fix the problem, you will be improving safety, reducing human error, controlling risk, getting along better with the regulators and you will be reducing the financial losses of accidents!

One accident can financially cripple a company!

The 3-Day Intensive Accident Investigator Training Program will help you prevent accidents, and if you only ever prevent one accident, this course will have easily paid for itself! Now is the time to modernize your safety investigation skills with an efficacy-based human factors focus.

A 2-Day Condensed Intensive Accident-Incident Safety Investigator Training Program is available for organizations with a current Safety Management System(SMS).  Your SMS investigation components can be mapped onto the CIIP.
