Building a Risk Management Information System (RMIS): A Deep Dive into analyzing Contributing Factors and Mitigating Factors through Incident Database Tracking and Business Analytics Tools

A Risk Management Information System (RMIS) is more than simply collecting incident reports. The RMIS is a comprehensive approach to risk management that combines structured incident data collection with causal analysis to identify the contributing factors and mitigating factors in the dynamic risk equation. Starting with data collection, you will learn how to utilize database technologies to gather comprehensive and consistent data for later analysis. Using the Risk Assessment & Safety Management framework, participants will learn how to combine the benefits of traditional Safety I methodologies (Avoiding That Things Go Wrong) with the newer Safety II methodologies (Ensuring That Things Go Right). Through case study analyses and hands-on practice with incident data, you will learn how to build graphical accident causation models (AcciMaps) and accident prevention models (PreventiMaps) and use business analytics tools to present and interact with your incident data.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how the Safety I framework and Safety II framework are complementary parts of an overall risk management plan
  • Understand the Systems Thinking Approach to risk management
  • Learn how a Risk Management Information System (RMIS) can provide rich data for implementing Safety I and Safety II principles
  • Learn how to assess your program by building AcciMaps and PreventiMaps
