ICAM stands for Incident Cause Analysis Method. The ICAM analysis draws on the work of organisational psychologist and human error expert Professor James Reason to identify the underlying causes of the incident which are systemic in nature (eg. related to factors such as failures in design, procedures, training, auditing or risk management). James Reason did a lot of work on understanding ‘Human Error’ and the ICAM model is based on his Swiss Cheese, Defenses in Depth model of incident causation. This process ensures that the investigation is not restricted to the errors and violations made only by the people directly involved.
The ICAM provides a highly practical and structured method in which to conduct systematic investigations and is designed for OHS, operations and maintenance supervisory personnel who will either lead, facilitate or participate in both low and high level event investigations.
