This course provides training on incident analysis based on barrier failure analysis BFA method using IncidentXP which is a software tool that provides a platform for conducting barrier based investigations of incidents and accidents. It facilitates the organization of information gathered during an investigation into a logical timeline and then structures the analysis of the event according to the identification of barrier failures. Next, the immediate and systemic causes of the failures are analyzed in order to generate logical and effective recommendations to improve safety performance. It can be used as a stand-alone tool or integrates seamlessly with BowTieXP risk analysis software to establish a feedback loop between predicted performance and real-world data.

In this practical 2-day course we use a mix of presentations, interactive exercises, case studies and guided workshops to make sure you get the most out of the training.
