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