Kelvin TOP-SET 1-Day Investigator Course

Summary

Learn to use the TOP-SET system to enhance your investigation skills and become an active member of your incident investigation team.

Schedule

The 1-Day Investigator course is specifically designed for managers, supervisors and safety representatives who are required to take part in incident investigations but not necessarily required to lead the investigation team. The course introduces delegates to the Kelvin TOP-SET incident investigation system and teaches participants the specific steps of investigating an incident using the TOP-SET process. A variety of short case studies and worked examples are used to stimulate discussion and reinforce the concepts being taught.

1 day course 1 day course materials

Some of the concepts explored during the course include the significance of change, and how missing barriers and defences and the by-passing of controls can influence the circumstances leading to an incident. The course also pays particular attention to the investigation of near hits and minor incidents as a method of preventing more serious incidents from occurring. The learning objectives are similar to that of the Kelvin TOP-SET 3-Day Senior Investigator Course but at a much more basic level.

After attending this course delegates will be able to actively participate in an incident investigation team and will have a good understanding of how to investigate an incident using the TOP-SET methodology.

This course is run on an open basis in the UK and internationally and can also be run as an in-house course on request.

If you are considering using an external venue to run an in-house course, we may well be able to help. We have an excellent relationship with a local hotel which offers very reasonable preferential rates to all of our clients for conference rooms and accommodation. The hotel is close to our global headquarters so booking a course here will also give you the chance to meet some of our core team to discuss any issues or address any questions that you may have. The venue is easily reached via Prestwick or Glasgow International airports in under an hour, so is ideal if you need to fly delegates in to the course from multiple locations. Please contact us for further information and rates.
