  • ICAM stands for Incident Cause Analysis Method. ICAM is an investigation methodology for use in a whole range of industries including aviation, transport, mining, rail, security and health and draws on the work of Professor James Reason.

The Facilitator course is aimed at participants who have little real-world experience with incident investigation, and who may be required to form part of an investigation team in their workplace. Participants will be equipped with the knowledge to assist in ICAM investigations.

The course introduces the key concepts of incident investigation under the ICAM methodology. To explore these concepts, participants will undertake several group-based activities based on a simulated incident scenario.
