Transmission Line Routing and Design

12-13th March, Vancouver, 23-24th March, Calgary, 26-27th March, Toronto

OverviewAgendaCourse LeaderRegisterVenueContact


The Transmission Line Routing and Design course is designed to give a wide understanding of incident investigation process. It will provide you with ample examples of implementation of serious incident investigation practices. This entire course will cover accidents investigations, the process of gathering evidence, interviews & analysis of the evidence. Participants will have a thorough understanding about the benefits of accident prevention & human factor potential influence in the investigation & over the reporting process. It will enable the deputies to better identify activated incident investigation. This training will provide representatives with significant updates on the investigation process, safeguarding the efficiency of investigating the serious incident investigation process, communication & therefore learning from the things that may go wrong within one’s’ organization.

Learning Objectives

  • Judging what, when & how to report a serious incident.
  • Learning the broad knowledge on investigation legislations, responsibilities & principles
  • Safety Regulations to be followed during an accident & an insight on post incident responsibility of employers
  • How to objectify & gather specific data during the investigation & distinguishing them on the account of reliability & credibility.
  • Conceding influence of human factors- How they impact Investigations & Reporting
  • Outlook on the awareness of the different responses to serious incidents, techniques to increase incompetence in interviewing staff under such conditions.
  • Studying potential barriers in between a good investigation
  • Successful Strategies for improving effective investigation practices

Target Audience

Anyone involved in the process of investigating incidents and accidents.
