How to code causal factors

Section 4.3 allows you to record the causal factors involved in the incident.

Completing this section is important, as it will allow you to conduct a systems analysis of the causal factors involved in your incidents using the Accimap program.

Coding the causal factors involves the following steps:

  1.  Structure the information provided in Sections 4.1 and 4.2 into a list.

  1. Put each of the causal factors identified into a “Description field” of Section 4.3. Note: the Accimap program will not work unless you add a description in each field.

  1. For each of the causal factors you identify, choose a category for “Level 1” and “Level 2”. The meaning of each category is described in detail here.
