Introduction to Root Cause Analysis (IRCA) 


Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a method that is used to address a problem or non-conformance, in order to get to the “root cause” of the problem.  RCA is used to assist in identifying additional barriers and items to correct or eliminate the cause(s) of a safety event and/or a non-conformance with regulations or standard as a result of an audit. With a comprehensive RCA process “real fixes” that address the “real issue(s)” help in preventing recurrence of the safety event or audit finding. Without a comprehensive RCA process, it is likely the “true” problem will not be addressed (or addressed in full), and a similar safety event or audit finding will reoccur – representing wasted time, effort and money to an operator. 

This 1-day Introduction to RCA course will provide a general overview of the RCA process for dealing with audit findings and safety events as well.
