Situation-Filter-Outcome (SFO) Model

The Situation-Filter-Outcome Model (SFO)


Do not attempt to identify the Latent Causes of an incident without using the Situation-Filter-Outcome (SFO) Model. The SFO model has been modified many times since being developed in the early 1990's. All of Failsafe's failures in trying to identify latent causes have been addressed by using this model. It is strongly suggested that you download the PowerPoint slides, and then show them to the stakeholders during the latent cause phase of the stakeholder meetings. It will keep everyone on track, and reveal what needs to be revealed to help everyone understand the latencies.
