This project aims to test and fully develop a collaborative and adaptive root-cause analysis (CARCA) tool. Designed as an educational technology, the goal of this tool is to enhance learning and retention of knowledge and skills of Health, Safety, Environment, and Regulatory professionals in their incident/accident investigations. The project will extensively test the tool for individual-use andcollaborative-use in the industry partner's multiple departments. It will then identify the benefits and shortcomings of each methodology.
The proposed research aims to test the relative merits of the “collaborative and adaptive root cause analysis” (CARCA) technique. Through this technique, the aim is to enhance Health, Safety, and Environment employers’ appreciation of complex events and phenomena associated with operational incidents, contributing to their professional development as joint thinkers. Various incident-based scenarios will be used to prompt participants to make inquiry, and collaboratively identify the multiple root causes that contributed to the make-up of those incidents.
