Many organizations in the oil and gas industry today commit extensive resources to the prevention of accidents in the<br>workplace. Whilst accidents do happen from time to time despite the best efforts, even more resources is devoted into the<br>post-incident processes which include response, reporting, investigation and reviewing processes. A review of incidents in<br>the industry reveals that lessons learnt from past accidents were never effectively applied and very often, investigation of<br>incidents were poorly done. This paper examines the common issues in post-incident processes that contribute to incident<br>recurrence in the industry. The use of After Action Reviews (AAR) or Incident Review processes are tools that can be used to<br>help ensure that root causes are identified and understood as well as ensuring that effective corrective actions are applied. The<br>implementation of a structured Incident Review Board (IRB) process Baker Hughes globally has helped to improve postincident<br>learning and improve effectiveness of implementing remedial measures. The IRB process will be explained in detail<br>and some insights into actual IRB’s will be shared. A critical evaluation on the benefits and challenges posed by this process<br>is undertaken.
