Cultural Cause Analysis™ Toolkit

Cultural Cause Analysis Toolkit

Mapping Safety Data to Mitigate Cultural Hazards

Harnessing data to address underlying cultural issues is the vision for the future of root cause analysis and process safety management.

Cultural Cause Analysis™ (CCA) is a groundbreaking solution developed over 10 years through evaluating data insights that identify the leading cultural factors that contributed to major incidents. As a next-generation root cause analysis and risk management tool, CCA helps organizations map performance data to manage their cultural hazards risk and drive lasting changes that promote more sustainable HSE performance.

CCA combines the disciplines of RCA, incident investigation and process safety management. This data-driven solution dives into the leading cultural factors that cause safety, quality and reliability issues. Corrective actions addressing these cultural issues, if effective, will help organizations improve HSE performance and achieve their 'drive to zero' safety objectives.
