Maritime

Barrier-based Incident Investigation Course

Training course to enable participants to independently carry out incident investigations using DNV GL's BSCAT methodology.

Objectives

The training will enable the participants to independently carry out incident investigations for various types of events from slips, trips and falls to process safety related incidents and for different degrees of severity. Nevertheless, the focus is on serious incidents and incidents with high risk potential. The training will introduce the SCAT (Systematic Causal Analysis Technique) and BSCAT (Barrier-based Systematic Causal Analysis Technique) methodology developed by DNV GL and the course will be conducted by experienced Incident investigation experts from DNV GL Oil & Gas Germany.


Entrance requirements

No specific prerequisites.

Who should attend:
Members of HSE department and participants in investigations, management functions dealing with incident investigations.

Duration: 2 days


The entire investigation process is run through during the training and the theory is made tangible using an adequate example. Nevertheless, the main intention of the example is to demonstrate the application of the methodology, which can be easily transferred to other industries, e.g. maritime, oil & gas, energy etc. The SCAT and BSCAT methodologies are widely used across different industries. 

The course modules are structured accordingly:

  • Incident Investigation – Setting the scene
  • What to do, when the phone rings?
  • Incident Exercise Introduction
  • Evidence Gathering
  • Building and managing an Investigation Team
  • Interview Techniques
  • Timeline & Storyboard (course of events)
  • Introduction to SCAT and BSCAT
  • Identification of events
  • Identification and analysis of barriers
  • Scenario Development
  • Root Cause Analysis
  • Reporting and Follow-up
The proportion of practical exercises is high and will help the participants to later apply what they have learned in their own field of activity. With our training setup, the participants will work in an open learning atmosphere, which in addition to the exchange between participants and the trainer, also promotes exchanges between participants themselves. The minimum number of participants is 6. Maximum number of participants is 12.
