Serious Incident And Fatality (SIF) Program
Continental has an established, formal SIF program, designed so the necessary focus and resources are directed to prevention of the most impactful incidents. The SIF program focuses on identifying and investigating any incident that had the potential to result in a fatality, life-altering injury, or significant environmental impact. Once a formal root cause investigation is completed for such an incident, corrective and preventive action plans are developed to reduce the likelihood that similar incidents could occur in the future. The SIF program also facilitates communication about potential incidents to improve prevention efforts across our operations.
