Root Cause Analysis Execution is a comprehensive five (5) day training program in performing effective causal analysis, based on the universal Phoenix Method™. It is designed to train participants in application of proven practical analysis tools used to determine the contributing factors of an event and to identify appropriate corrective actions, with the end goal of significantly reducing the probability of event recurrence.
“If the pain is describable, the Phoenix Method is applicable”
The Phoenix™ Method is a business-oriented, consequence-focused, significance-driven investigation process successfully applied for over 20 years in high hazard/ high reliability organizations and industries with a strong desire to avoid repeating mistakes and to prevent serious accidents or events from recurring. The Phoenix Method, has been utilized to evaluate any event for which the adverse consequences can be defined – if the pain is describable, the Phoenix Method is applicable.
The Phoenix Method has been used to analyze the causes of accidents and substandard results in the following applications:
Selected Organizations where the Phoenix Method has been Engaged:
Individuals responsible for performing root cause analysis in high-hazard industries/ high reliability organizations and related sectors such as the mining, construction, chemical and petro-chemical industries, transportation, medical, waste handling/collecting, nuclear power, radiation protection, work protection, radioactive material and fuel handling (all classes), manufacturing/ production facilities, laboratories, defense, among many others.
You learn through in-class face-to-face instruction, active discussion, daily assignments, group and team exercises and a final exam. The learning experience is set apart from any root cause course you have taken. This is supplemented with tailored causal analysis work books, entailing the training manual, copies of all slides, and sample root cause reports.
CLASS SIZE: 12-16 participants
KNOWLEDGE CONVEYANCE: Instructor-led Seminar, Individual and Group/ Team Exercises, engaging Terminal and Enabling Objectives, and a final, graded Assessment.
PRE-REQUISITES: Previous causal analysis training and experience helpful, however not necessary.
Participants will engage in:
The course will give you more than just a certificate: you will learn to properly execute root cause analysis to significantly reduce negative event frequency, secure safer operations through corrective actions, retain customer and public trust, and address regulators’ and management concerns with effective reporting and corrective actions.
The course engages selected root cause reports for the participants to assess and evaluate. Example root case reports are pre-determined through discussion between the participants and the instructor.
Each instructor has over 30 years direct experience in high-hazard industry, advanced and related degrees, and has earned rigorous professional certifications through examination. As well, each instructor is regularly engaged in leading or advising root cause teams investigating significant events in the power industry, petro-chemical, manufacturing, mining, electrical, construction, supplier, drilling, fabrication, decommissioning, transportation, nuclear power and other high hazard sectors. Course Instructors: Dr. Michael D. Quinn and others.
