SITE INSPECTION (PRACTICAL – MOCK) WORKSHOP

This one (1) day workshop is designed for personnel who may be among the first responders to an incident and are responsible for the immediate actions in relation to the investigation after any emergency response is complete.

Incident sites are dynamic – rarely do they remain the same for very long. After ensuring that personnel are safe and confirming any hazards are under control, the Investigation Team needs to determine very quickly “what did it look like at the time of the incident?”… Not after the rescue, recovery, clean-up etc. has been conducted

Knowing what to look for at an incident scene quickly and how to record that data is crucial to the credibility of evidence collected during an investigation. Evidence does not remain in-situ for long and Investigators need to ensure they collect data quickly before changes are made and evidence is compromised, destroyed or goes missing.   This workshop will provide a methodical approach to the Immediate Actions and Site Inspection requirements during an investigation integrated into a practical (mock) incident scene.

Target Audience

  • Personnel who would be expected to attend incident scenes, inspect incident sites and collect data in-situ prior to incident recovery, clean up measures.

WITNESS INTERVIEWING WORKSHOP

This one (1) day workshop is designed for personnel who are required to conduct witness interviews as part of incident investigations. Attendees will learn how to effectively apply the Hierarchy of Questioning Technique to obtain and assess information from personnel who were involved, saw or responded to incidents.

  • How much weight can you place on information from witnesses to an incident?  
  • How can you prepare to maximise the potential benefit from witness accounts?
  • What questions should you ask?
  • What do you do when accounts from different witnesses differs?

Information from witnesses can be valuable, however, there are many considerations to be taken into account.

Obtaining information from key witnesses during an incident investigation can be challenging, particularly when information from various sources does not align. This workshop will provide a structured approach to witness interviewing and a method to weigh up and compare different accounts or inconsistencies.

Target Audience

  • Personnel who would be required to interview witnesses to workplace incidents or others who could provide information.

5 WHY’s WORKSHOP

This one (1) day workshop is designed for personnel who are required to utilise the 5 Why’s problem solving technique as part of incident investigations to learn the key principles to ensure the process effectively identifies and addresses the root causes of an incident. (Note - workshop also available as a ½ day option)

In relation to incident investigations, the 5 Why’s Technique is a well-known process that aims to distinguish an incident’s visible symptoms from the underlying latent root causes. Many organisations either use this technique for low level incidents or require this process to be completed in conjunction with the Incident Cause Analysis Method (ICAM).

While the end process from conducting a 5 Why’s can be beneficial in identifying the root causes of an incident, the key process steps and questioning technique are critical to ensure an effective outcome. This workshop will address how to ensure all phases of the incident are addressed and latent issues identified.

Target Audience

  • Personnel who are required to use the 5 Why’s technique in relation to incident investigations.
