The design, development and testing of a collaborative and adaptive root-cause analysis (CARCA) tool in a professional health, safety, environment, and regulatory department

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 technology will finally be built in the industry partner's Canada operations network and address its local training and competency needs.
