Change from normal operating state into a state of abnormal (or disturbed) operation. An example is the tank level deviation in Figure 3-1. 3 An Overview of Incident Causation Theories 35 2. Breakdown of the control of the abnormal operating phase. An example is the distributive control system (DCS) not compensating properly in Figure 3-1. Another example is the operator not detecting the deviation in Figure 3-1. 3. Loss of control of energy accumulations. An example is the operator not responding in Figure 3-1.

Ensuring investigations identify recommended preventive measures that reduce the probability of recurrence or mitigate potential consequences 4. Ensuring follow-up action to resolve all recommendations effectively The items in this list are essential to maintaining a well-designed incident investigation program.
