Does anyone recommend a certain root cause analysis template for a small company?

Tavish101 - it may be best to also follow-up with the RCA method recognized by your facility's certification/certifying body. My facility recently underwent our annual BRC Audit and we received a non-conformity for not conducting an RCA according to their acceptable methods. It looks like the SOP that Scampi provided is drafted according to the "Fishbone Method." This is a good one to use for more complex RCAs. There is also the "5 Why Method" where you pose the situation and ask "why did this happen" over and over again until you can no longer ask "why." Both of these are accepted by BRC (here is a learning tool to understand RCA https://images.templ...se-Analysis.pdf

 

I hope this helps!

I have used this template for years and it has been a successful. The first page is a fillable table that you can add rows to.

Hope this helps!
