Principles of Incident Investigation and Failure Analysis

Book Course

HSL is to run a 1 day course on Principles of Incident Investigation and Failure Analysis.

16 November 2017

Introduction

The ability to carry out a detailed and accurate mechanical failure analysis is a key skill for many sectors of industry particularly engineering, manufacturing and research and development.  From costly delays in production due to the failure of vital plant or tooling through to catastrophic failures with potential insurance and safety implications; all require the application of scientific analytical methods of inquiry.

HSL are offering a unique opportunity to engage directly with our incident investigation professionals and take full advantage of our decades of failure analysis experience.  This course is aimed at individuals or companies that maintain, contract or are seeking to develop failure analysis capability.  While the course will focus primarily on the investigation of mechanical and engineering failures, many of the principles covered will be directly transferable to investigations of any type.  The course will explain the common strategies and tactics of the failure analysis process from the initial response through to presenting your findings.

The course will address the following areas:

  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Strategy and tactics of incident investigation and failure analysis
  • Initial Inspection
  • Identification and collection of evidence
  • Record and note keeping
  • Common failure mechanisms
  • Establishing cause and contributory factors
  • Engaging scientific support
  • Presenting your findings

Who should attend

This entry level course would be most useful for H&S managers, insurance professionals, design and process engineers and other professionals seeking to better understand the forensic, scientific and analytical process.

Venue

The course will be run at the HSL laboratory in the spa town of Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and has good links to mainline train stations and Manchester International Airport.
