This is a classroom-based 1-day SCS-certified course in causes and effects of loss. It is available from SCS when requested to suit your schedule, with a minimum of 5 student enrollments required.

This causes and effects of loss training emphasizes that every loss exposure is the result of multiple cause factors and the training will define for you the general methods for controlling loss due to incidents and potential occurrences.

Course Content

An incident may be defined as an event that could or does result in unintended harm or damage. Loss is usually the result of contact with a substance or a source of energy.

To manage loss within the work environment, you must first understand what causes accidents/incidents/events related to work activities in the work place. Losses can be truly controlled only when their potential causes are addressed.

This course will illustrate a practical model of accident/incident/event cause factors; substandard acts and conditions, personal/job systems factors and compliance with those systems. These causation factors can be applied to the control of accidents/incidents/events potentials.

Four subsystems: people, equipment, materials and environment are major sources of loss and four sources of control will be brought to light through your training in cause and effects of loss.
