What does a bad day look like? Huge wave crashes through ferry window

Picture yourself cruising along on the River Elbe in Germany when suddenly a huge wave breaks the ferry window. This really happened, as you can see in the video. All of sudden, there were terrifying moments for passengers on a ferry when a massive wave crashed through the front window, breaking it and sending passengers flying to the back of the vessel.

Watch the video of the ferry window breaking and more:

Would you like to learn about on-site TapRooT® Training? The TapRooT® Advantage is a systematic process to find and fix the root causes of audits/assessments, precursor incidents, and major accidents.

Use TapRooT® RCA to:

  • Collect, understand, and organize evidence about what happened. The TapRooT® tool, the SnapCharT® diagram, reduces investigator bias and makes the facts make sense without developing hypotheses.
  • Identify all the Causal Factors (the human errors or equipment failures) that led to the problem – the starting point for root cause analysis.
  • Use expert guidance to analyze human errors using the Human Performance Troubleshooting Guide and equipment failures using the Equifactor® Troubleshooting Tables.
  • Analyze the real root causes of problems guided by the Root Cause Tree® Diagram and Dictionary.
  • Develop effective fixes for problems using the Corrective Action Helper® Guide and Safeguard Analysis to stop repeat incidents or significantly reduce their consequences.

Become trained in troubleshooting and identifying root causes of issues and incidents.
