Getting started with TRIPOD...

Better learning from incidents

Take the opportunity to find out that the Tripod method may be is the best method to identify the underlying factors of your incidents and near misses. By removing these underlying factors ('Latent Failures'), a whole range of future incidents are prevented. You will make a step change in Safety!

Tripod uses the failing/ missing barrier approach.  These barriers need to be identified and then placed in a simple structure ('Tripod Tree) for further analysis. The further analysis is an interactive team effort. The TR2 webapplication software facilitates the proces and the reporting.
