Course Overview

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.

This ICAM Lead Investigator course has been developed to extend the knowledge and skills gained in Pinnacle’s ICAM Facilitator course, and is also suitable for those with existing real-world experience in incident investigations in the workplace, or prior ICAM training.

This course covers key incident investigation concepts and techniques designed to equip learners with the skills and knowledge to efficiently and effectively investigate workplace incidents, identify root causes, and recommend effective corrective actions to prevent future incidents.

Course Outline

This course will cover the following topics:

  • ICAM methodology
  • Human and organisational factors leading to incidents
  • Safety culture and organisational drift
  • ICAM analysis on contributing factors including organisational factors, task/environmental conditions, individual/team conditions and absent/failed defences
  • Creating an investigation action plan
  • Duties under health and safety legislation
  • Incident response processes and procedures
  • Planning an investigation and forming an investigation team
  • Evidence collection methods and techniques, including the PEEPO Data Collection Matrix (People, Equipment, Environment, Procedures and Organisation)
  • Witness interview techniques and practices
  • Establishment of a timeline
  • Analysis of evidence to identify the root cause and contributing factors
  • Risk management techniques
  • Developing recommendations
  • Writing clear and concise incident reports

What is a "Virtual Classroom"?

​A Virtual Classroom is an online learning environment that allows for live interaction (audio and video) between a trainer and their participants as they are participating in learning and assessment activities.

Face-To-Face (In-Person) or Virtual Classroom?

A number of important factors must be considered in determining which delivery format may be right for you. These include (but aren’t limited to):

  • Computer hardware, peripherals and environment
    • Do you have a modern laptop or desktop computer?
    • Can you ensure you are in a quiet room for the duration of your sessions?
    • Do you have a headset or headphones with a microphone (such as those supplied with mobile phones) compatible with your computer?
    • Do you have a webcam?
    • Do you have a reliable and fast internet connection suitable for streaming video?

If the answer to any of the above questions is “no”, we recommend attending one of our face-to-face sessions. Participants who elect to undertake their training via Virtual Classroom must agree with all terms and conditions pertaining to this mode of delivery.

Computer Literacy

While in class (either in-person or via Virtual Classroom), you will research, prepare and submit your assessments through the Learning Management System (LMS), Moodle. You will spend time researching online, developing procedures and completing quizzes and long answer questions.

This program is only recommended to those with a strong level of computer literacy.

Bring Your Own IT Equipment

Mandatory

  • Participants must provide their own laptop computer (with wireless internet capabilities)

Optional but highly recommended

  • Wireless mouse and keyboard (improves ergonomics and speed)
  • A second screen/monitor (improves ability to perform research)

Virtual Classroom participants must also have a headset or headphones with a microphone (such as those supplied with mobile phones) compatible with their computer.

To be successful in this course you need to:

  • a) Have completed Pinnacle’s ICAM Facilitator course, or

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Have at least a Year 12 level of numeracy, literacy and communication skills

  • Use a device that meets the minimum System Requirements of Pinnacle’s e-Learning system (we officially support and recommend modern desktop or laptop computers running Google Chrome web browser).
  • Have a strong level of computer literacy skills. Your assignments will be completed on a computer, and if you do not have a suitable level of computer experience, you will not be able to complete the course in the timeframe allotted
  • Be confident navigating with web browsers
  • Have the skills to compile electronic documents using software applications (word processing)

I really enjoyed my 2 day traffic management course. I learnt much more than expected, the staff are really informative and kind and I would definitely return to obtain more tickets from this provider. Thank you for your service.
