CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

These four, endorsed classes (covering RCA facilitation, leadership, participation and investigation) are already being offered by AASC members, including Evergreen Safety Council in Seattle, Washington; Great Lakes Safety Training Center in Midland, Michigan; Pacific Safety Council in San Diego; Safety Council of Louisiana Capital Area in Baton Rouge; and Suncoast Safety Council in Clearwater, Florida.

The two-day Practitioner course enables students to facilitate a team-based root cause analysis with the end goal of preventing problem recurrence.
As part of this, students learn how to:

•    Avoid common problem-solving pitfalls and implement best practices.
•    Define any event-based problem, develop a causal understanding of events, and identify effective solutions.
•    Use RealityCharting software to build cause and effect charts, prepare RCA reports, and effectively communicate RCA findings.
•    Support causes with evidence, interview stakeholders, and facilitate RCAs.
•    Apply the method to real-world problems.

The one-day Super User course enables students to fulfill an RCA program leadership role acquiring advanced skills and knowledge.  As part of this, students learn how to:

•    Align the objectives of the Apollo RCA program with the business goals.
•    Gain advanced RCA facilitation skills.
•    Effectively design, roll out, develop and manage RCA programs.
•    Assure program payback and develop measurable metrics.
•    Understand and more effectively manage complex issues like human error and behaviors.

The one-day Participants course provides awareness-level training needed by those expected to participate in an incident investigation.  Participants are often subject-matter experts who know the causes and may be expected to implement corrective actions.

The 1.5-day Investigator Essentials course teaches the critical skills required to lead an effective investigation; produce credible results; and protect the credibility and integrity of the investigation team, problem owner and impacted parties/individuals.
