Using the Swiss Cheese Model for Risk Mitigation

Speaker: Ralph Krueger

About Topic

Since the early 1990s, the Swiss Cheese Model (SCM) has been used in the fields of accident prevention and environmental incident investigation. By extension, this model can be applied by quality practitioners to improve risk mitigation strategies to prevent and understand quality failures in manufacturing and service environments. The development of the model, it’s underlying principles and its application will be discussed. A health care example and a quality management example will be presented to illustrate the utility of this model in our current context.
