Process Safety

Process Safety improvement depends on effective root cause analysis of precursor incidents.

Process Safety Improvement Using TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis

Make your investigations of precursor incidents and accidents effective by applying TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis. 

Why hasn’t process safety improved more since the regulations were published more than 25 years ago? Could it be that people are applying ineffective common root cause tools to learn from their process safety experiences rather than applying advanced root cause analysis – TapRooT®? You might think that low consequence process safety incidents don’t deserve more than asking “why’ 5 times. But these low consequence process safety incidents are precursors of much more significant high consequence process safety accidents. Failing to find and fix all the root causes of these lower consequence incidents is failing to fix the causes of your next big accident. That is why using TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis is so important to process safety professionals.

But here is the real kicker … using TapRooT® to investigate low consequence process safety incidents is not much more work overall than doing a simple 5-Why analysis. Yet it yields superior results!
