Knowing When There’s “Nothing More to Learn“

A Can’t-Miss Session for Process Safety Managers!

The five-step TapRooT® process provides an exit path (2.2) after the initial SnapCharT® when it indicates there is “nothing more to learn.”

Simple TapRooT® 5-Step Process

Using this pathway improves the efficiency of a productive investigation program by allocating resources to incidents with greater learning potential.

But how do we know when it is safe to discontinue an investigation without leaving any gaps that could lead to incidents of higher learning potential? Failure to act responsibly in opting out of a full investigation can, and often does, trigger mandatory investigations later when the consequence is unacceptable.

This session demonstrates the use of a screening program created to identify process safety incidents that should be fully investigated, even if they appear to offer nothing more to learn. The assessment tool borrows from the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) Safety Matrix to identify a growing risk of safety hazards among particular tasks. A risk calibration method is then used to justify voluntary investigations to address low-consequence incidents as a measure to prevent mandatory investigations that exceed designated tolerance thresholds.

If you want to improve your process safety, this session is right for you! Join us at the 2024 Global TapRooT® Summit May 1 – 3. This session occurs on Wednesday, May 1, 2024, at 11:30 AM. Make sure you schedule your return flights home after the Summit ends on Friday at noon. You won’t want to miss everything the Summit has to offer.
