Tripod Beta incident analysis method
Tripod Beta is an internationally renowned incident analysis method. Developed by the University of Leiden and the University of Manchester. The method is based on behavior analysis and already shown it’s use for several decades.
Tripod Beta is the only method to actively find the direct causes and the underlying organizational causes for the incident.
Our current two-day TRIPOD workshop is a good basis for independently starting with TRIPOD analyzes. This is sufficient for TRIPOD study participants. However, experience shows that additional guidance is desirable for those who conduct the studies.
Kuiper & Burger has developed a follow-up program, based on training "on the job": assisting, following and reviewing a number of analyzes after the first introductory training. This results in a qualification as a competent performer of TRIPOD analyzes (certificate).
Who uses Tripod Beta?
