5 Whys – “Going for Gold” in Incident Investigation Articles • With the Tokyo Olympic Games in full swing, it’s the perfect time to introduce a new e-learning tool from Safer Together that provides training in a problem-solving technique originally developed in Japan. Known as the “5 Whys”, it’s a simple but powerful tool that allows you to dissect a problem and reveal its underlying causes quickly. If used effectively, it can improve incident investigations and assist in the improvement of work practices, operational procedures and workplace safety culture.
Collaboration in Action: Assist and Assure Best Practice Workshop Articles • On 14 July the project team for the Assist and Assure leadership skills program held a Best Practice Workshop as part of providing implementation support to companies that have started to deploy, or are interested in deploying the Assist and Assure program. Presenters from Arrow Energy, MPC Kinetic, Wild Desert and Global Engineering & Construction shared their company’s deployment journey so that other member companies could have the benefit of learning from their experience.

In response to audit findings and incident investigations, there is often a tendency for companies to adopt a mindset of thinking “more is better”, resulting in more and more content being added to safety training courses, especially safety inductions. But a lengthy and voluminous induction does not necessarily improve safety outcomes.
Reflections from Queensland Frontline Workforce on Contain It Articles • Situational awareness and a hands-on feel of process safety hazards are essential for anyone in the CSG-LNG industry that is involved in the design, operation or maintenance of plant and facilities.
