Lessons Learned Library
The University of Tennessee System Safety Officer is establishing a Lessons Learned Library for the University System. This library allows personnel at each of the UT campuses to learn about other campus experiences and share their own.
Key Lessons Learned Questions
- what happened?
- what went wrong, and what went right?
- what did we learn, and what can we do towards prevention?
From these experiences we should be able to walk away with a few corrective actions or approaches that can help prevent an incident in the future.
You can develop and share Lessons Learned. Visit the Lessons Learned template page for more information.
