301 | Risk-Based Incident Analysis


Description

Learn to take incident analysis beyond the individual incident to categorize and organize incident trends and identify areas of common weakness. When incorporated into incident analysis, risk-centric concepts such as hazard and energy classification, and the hierarchy of controls, can yield valuable insights into common weakness in your management system and risk assessment methodology.

Learning Objectives:
• Identify what risk-based data can be most impactful in identifying cause factors and root causes
• Standardize a methodology to determine immediate, corrective and preventive actions
• Trend meaningful incident data, over time, to yield management system and risk assessment weaknesses and improvement initiatives
• Qualify your data to generate serious and fatal incident rates

302 | ANSI/ASSP Z16: Modern Metrics for the Safety Professional


Description

The OSH profession has long been hindered by one-dimensional metrics like incident and lost-time accident rates. While the addition of severity rates and DART rates has improved these metrics, they still suffer from the same problems: abstract numbers that can be meaningless to upper management and a narrow scope of what is being measured.

Learning Objectives:
• Apply traditional lagging indicators, such as incident rates and lost-time accident rates, in a manner that fits with the organization's business plans
• Select leading indicators that will be useful in preventing loss as well as applying such indicators toward building a safety culture and measuring management accountability for safety
• Expand the types of metrics being used to measure safety performance
• Track losses beyond direct costs
• Convert measurement of loss into financial terms

303 | The Four Core Components of Safety Excellence


Description

Organizations that have achieved world-class excellence in safety often have four commonalities:

3) good employee engagement;
4) direct measures to shape the safety culture.

This course explores each component, defining the steps necessary to accomplish each, and offering case studies from organizations that have been successful in one or all components.

Learning Objectives
• Examine existing safety efforts that these four opportunities can improve
• Transform leadership thinking from programmatic to strategic
• Demonstrate the power of coaching in achieving continuous improvement in safety

401 | Bowtie Risk Assessment


Description

ISO and ANSI/ASSP standards list bowtie analysis as a simple diagrammatic way to describe and analyze the pathways of a risk from hazards to outcomes. The method identifies the activities that keep a control working and who is responsible for a control. You can also use it to effectively analyze whether hazards are managed to an acceptable level (widely known as ALARP). If you are looking to add rigor in your risk assessment process, bowtie analysis can help you link causal relationships in high-risk scenarios.

Learning Objectives:
• Use the bowtie risk assessment methodology
• Determine control strategies for prevention and recovery (when controls do not work)
• Integrate the hierarchy of controls to semi-quantitatively verify risk reductions
