SaRS is delighted to be presenting this 3 Part Technical Learning Webinar Series on the development and use of Failure Reporting Analysis and Corrective Action Systems (FRACAS) – A Practical Guide to Failure Management.

Over the course of 3 webinars, Dr Joanne Lewis aims to provide you with an overview of the key elements of a good FRACAS process and, based on her experience, how to set up and successfully run a FRACAS team. Details will be provided on what’s needed for success at each stage and advice on what to do if it’s not working or you are in crisis management.

This is Part 2 of the series covering RCA techniques and pitfalls and developing solutions.

The webinar series is presented by:
