Risk, Reliability & Root Cause Analysis

April 23 at 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM CDT

This presentation, for both frontline and managers, clarifies the connection between risk, reliability and root cause analysis. These three topics can sometimes be vague theories rather than concrete disciplines. Companies inadvertently make problem-solving too complicated. Six-week quality programs that leave people confused, 300 puzzling "cause codes" and frustrating investigations are not just counterproductive, they can be detrimental. It can erode the effectiveness of an organization. Your problems are confusing enough; your problem-solving tools shouldn’t make it worse. Employees who are inundated with techniques, methods and software can lose track of the basics. All problem-solving efforts should be focused on your company’s goals with a bias toward principles.

Root Cause Analysis Case Study – Concorde Crash

April 30 at 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM CDT

On July 25, 2000, a Concorde Supersonic jet crashed near Paris, France killing all 109 people on board in addition to four on the ground. A tire on the left side disintegrated while the aircraft was accelerating during take-off and struck the underside of the wing, rupturing a fuel tank. Fuel poured from the tank and ignited. The Concorde had already reached a velocity where it could not stop safely by the end of the runway, so it lifted off the runway with flames hanging from the left wing. This webinar will discuss the causes of the disaster, including several specific lessons on risk, reliability and root cause analysis that can be applied within your organization.

Slips, Trips and Falls: Understanding the Causes to Prevent Incidents

May 7 at 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM CDT

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, falls account for one-fourth of all reported injury claims. Slips, trips and falls are also the second-leading cause of accidental death at work with about 16 fatalities per week (almost 850 per year). Only motor vehicle fatalities are higher. Just as defensive driving helps reduce the risk of vehicle accidents, defensive walking strategies, such as keep your eyes on the path, staying clear of objects and using the handrail, can be used to reduce the risk of falling. By knowing the causes of a fall, we can work to put in place risk reduction strategies to prevent a fall from happening. This webinar demonstrates the use of the Cause Mapping® method of root cause analysis to investigate and prevent slips, trips and falls to ultimately reduce the number of injuries in the workplace.

The Important Connection Between RCA and FMEA

Root cause analysis (RCA) is typically used for investigating why a problem did occur so that specific solutions can be implemented to prevent it from occurring again. Failure modes effect analysis (FMEA) is used to understand how a problem could happen in the future, to identify what actions should be taken to prevent it.

How A 5-Why Expands Into a Complete Investigation

July 9 at 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM CDT

Every investigation, regardless of its complexity, can begin with a simple 5-Why. Bigger incidents will be broken down into more detail. Even as the investigation expands into a larger analysis it does not contradict the initial 5-Why. Smaller incidents have few parts and bigger incidents have more parts, but the cause-and-effect principle doesn't change. It can be applied consistently to all incidents.
