GREATER CONSISTENCY WITH OTHER HUMAN PERFORMANCE TOOLS. New definitions of causal factors improve integration with the concepts of human performance technology; antecedent, behavior, consequence (ABC) analysis; and behavior-based risk management programs many organizations already use.

The Root Cause Analysis Handbook is a tool for understanding why root causes are important, identifying and defining inherent problems, collecting data for problem solving, analyzing data for root causes, and generating practical recommendations.
