Incident Investigations

Improving the quality and accuracy of information gathered post-incident

Reframing Incident Investigation Using Visual Literacy

Effective incident investigation is central to any safety program. However, many organizations struggle with garnering high quality insight in a timely manner. There are multiple problems with traditional approaches to incident investigation. At COVE we have developed a learning module that uses Visual Literacy tools and techniques to help you enhance, upgrade and refresh your approach to incident investigation.

At its core, is a shift in the approach to reorient those involved in analyzing unintended events. By taking a different perspective we are able to ‘get in the eyes of the worker’, evaluate incidents more thoroughly, understand how to recreate events and take a learning oriented approach. This reframing using Visual Literacy is innovative and additive to the existing tools and approaches you will be using.
