13:00 - 14:00

Registration for this event has now closed. 

Learning from incidents is a process that helps employees and organisations to better understand the causes of adverse events in order to prevent them from happening again. The way that organisations learn from their own past incidents, and external sources, is often hindered by the lack of information on similar incidents within the industry, available data focused on technical aspects of the incidents, little to no information on root causes, and often, biases that stay in the way of cross-industry learning.

As part of the Energy Institute’s Toolbox project, we are bringing you a series of free to attend monthly webinars that will run throughout 2022, exploring various topics to help organisations better learn from past incidents. In the first event of the series, scheduled to take place in January 2022, our speakers will share their experience, knowledge, and findings on the key aspects of why people and organisations don’t often learn from outside their industry.


Who should attend?
This webinar is intended for a broad audience e.g. HSE managers, HSE specialists, site managers, team leaders, frontline workers, training professionals, LFI coordinators, incident investigators, consultants, and researchers.

This webinar is free to attend but registration is required.
