Safety investigation is a key component of robust Safety Management, bringing valuable lessons and feedback into the system from which the organisation can learn. It is often a major factor in encouraging and building a solid safety culture. It is also an activity that is often misunderstood, misapplied and inadequately resourced, with investigating staff unsure of what they should be doing and how they should be doing it.
“Safety Investigation – Managing the Basics” is a two day workshop designed to give those tasked with investigating incidents the tools and confidence to approach investigations effectively. It concentrates on ensuring that participants have a proper understanding of the role, and encourages participants to practice necessary basic skills during the course. Course content includes:
- · Why Investigate: A Legal, Business & Moral Framework
- · Company Responsibilities for Investigation
- · The Role of Investigator
- · Setting the Scene: Creating a Framework for Investigating
- · Collecting & Managing Evidence
- · Dealing with Witness Statements
- · Conducting Interviews
- · Report Writing: Driving Conclusions & Recommendations
- · Record Keeping
The workshop encourages participation and interaction, and is suitable for ANY staff member within an aviation organisation who may have to conduct or manage investigations, regardless of organisational position or discipline.
