Investigation and analysis systems
Investigation and analysis systems provide a means to:
• Give priority to those circumstances which present the greatest risk;
• Identify both the immediate and the underlying causes of events;
• Refer information to the management level with the authority to initiate necessary remedial action, including organisational and policy changes; analyse all collected data to identify common features or trends and initiate improvements.
