You're correct - in my mind that is a key challenge in writing Lessons Learned reports. Is the goal of these report to identify a 'root cause' or corrective action related to a specific incident, or is it to raise awareness of the safety elements of the situation being discussed that contributed to the event?

I think that the DOE report is more helpful for the second purpose than the first.

Thanks for your comment on this.
