CHAS Why it went wrong: Blame-free investigation of lab-scale incidents

Tue, October 5, 2021
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM EDT
Registration fee $300

Many scholarly and practical publications are available addressing incident investigation. None, however, is devoted strictly to the unique environment of the teaching and research laboratories.
The purpose of this workshop is to provide methods for investigating laboratory-scale incidents to elucidate the underlying (root) causes and the direct and contributing causes those incidents. The workshop participant will learn methods for conducting an investigation and how to structure a report using a blame-free approach.
Presentation methods will include lecture and discussion and role-playing incident investigations. The participants will study the incident investigations of several well-documented actual events and then practice investigation skills in presented scenarios.

Presented by Harry Elston, Mike Koehler
