RCat Charts & Worksheets

RCat Charts and Worksheets

Root Cause Analysis – RCat™ is a valuable tool to help an organization break the cycle of ineffective investigations and repeat accidents. It is designed to help an investigation team (or individuals) “cover all the bases” as they analyze the multiple causes of the accident or incident. RCat™ makes use of two simple tools:

RCat™ Chart – A detailed chart/map linking incidents to their immediate, root (or underlying) causes, and the inadequate controls which led to the problem. The chart is 18 by 24 inches and color-coded to guide investigation teams/individuals through the analysis process. The chart shows the five steps linking incidents to their immediate, root (or underlying) causes, and the inadequate controls which led to the problem. Charts are available in paper copy or can be laminated for use with erasable markers.

RCat™ Worksheet – designed to be used with the chart, the worksheet records the results of the analysis and ensures that all causes are identified and that appropriate controls are recommended. 

With these tools, investigators trained in RCat™ techniques can analyze accidents and near-miss incidents effectively. The end result is that they get beyond the symptoms and to the real, root causes of the problem.
