Despite of all the good efforts of a company unfortunately sometimes it goes wrong. It is then important to be able to intervene effectively to prevent further consequential damages. In addition, it is sensible that an organization learns from its “mistakes” to finally come out stronger.
Proveiance can help to organize this process.
We can set up/engineer the following:
Emergency response organization:
- writing emergency plan
- make escape / evacuation drawing
- implementing emergency plan, including exercises
- training / instruct emergency response
- purchase necessary materials
There are various methods to investigate an accident or incident. Below are some examples that we can offer you. Of course a “private” method can be applied.
Note that if there is a (serious) accident or incident occurs, it is important that there should be as fast as possible an investigation and research and that witnesses / victims will be heard. Also, make sure that nothing will be changed since this adversely affects the examination.
Major Accident should also be warned the Labour Inspection (SZW). For exact rules see the following link: Notifiable accidents (Dutch)
It is important to have a good contingency plan and that the necessary procedures are known. Proveiance can assist you in setting up, maintaining and practicing emergency plans.
TRIPOD can be used for all types of accidents, but in practice this method is often used more for heavier / high potential incidents. The method analyzes an accident / incident in such a way that argues it back to the latent causes of an incident and finally to the basic risk factors. For further information refer to the writing of the PHOV: PHOV comparison of analysis for accidents (Dutch)
The root cause analysis is a practical, common way to investigate accidents and incidents. From an event is reverse reasoned what exactly happened. In this way, measures can be taken to prevent recurrence. For more information see: explanation root-cause analysis
A Bowtie (bow tie) gives a clear graphical overview of a critical event. On the left are the risks and related Lines of Defences (LOD), this is the preventive side. On the right are the remedial measures and / or impact mitigation measures, including appropriate LODs.
It depends on the strength of the LODs that a critical event occurs. This also applies to the effect. The stronger the LODs, the smaller the impact will be when a critical event occurs.
