Root Cause Analysis Template

Performing a root cause analysis (RCA) is a staple of the incident investigation process. And having a template to do it the same every time makes it even more effective.

This RCA template guides you along the process by asking you to answer key questions regarding your processes, training, equipment, and more.

It starts out with a description of the incident and then moves into the questionnaire. Through the questions, you should be able to work through the incident details and go below the surface.

This type of deep dive is necessary if you want to address the true root cause and avoid repeating incidents. Download this free template in your preferred format and make sure you log a different analysis for each report you file.
