The challenge

Many operations struggle to realise full benefit from incident investigations and the corrective actions that follow. As a result, weak controls fly under the radar and serious incidents tend to repeat over time.

Case Study

Following a fatality and sequence of high-potential near misses, a large mining organisation with over 11 sites in Australia used the Meta Incident Analysis to better understand organisational factors and precursors that were still prevalent in the organisation long after the incidents occurred. This informed strategy, improved severity classification and led to a shift in decluttering work practices and a more targeted focus on building capacity in critical risk management.
