ICAM Incident / Accident

Adelaide OHS Consultants can assist businesses conduct internal investigations of accidents, incidents and near misses at the workplace. The investigations are outcome focused to identify corrective actions that will prevent recurrence, reduce risk and improve safety performance.

Adelaide OHS Consultants uses the analysis tool ICAM (Incident Cause Analysis Method) during the course of the investigation.

ICAM is a systemic safety investigation analysis method that aims to identify both local factors and failures within the broader business and productive system that contributed to the incident, such as communication, training, operating procedures, incompatible goals, change management, organisational culture and equipment. Through the analysis of this information, ICAM provides the ability to identify what really went wrong and to make recommendations on necessary corrective actions to reduce risk and build error-tolerant defences against future incidents. The ICAM process incorporates Best Practice, Human Factors and Risk Management principles.
