This is a chart to be made from a specified link in the instructions. There are two parts to the assignment and though it looks to be very long, it is not. Most of it is instructions on how to complete the assignment. I have included everything that is needed on the attached file and it also has some examples from the textbook in jpgs as well. Please read over the instructions before accepting. This is a two part assignment and all references must be cited in APA formatting.

Events and Causal Factors Chart Project
Read the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) investigation report of the 2007 propane
explosion at the Little General Store in Ghent, WV. The final report can be
read/downloaded at the following link:
http://www.csb.gov/assets/1/19/CSBFinalReportLittleGeneral.pdf
Additional information on the incident, including a video summary, can be found at the
following link:
http://www.csb.gov/little-general-store-propane-explosion/
Complete the assignment as detailed below.
Part I: From the information in the report, create a chart listing events and causal
factors for the incident in Microsoft Word, Open Office, or a similar word processing
software. If you choose to use a program other than Microsoft Word, be sure to save
and submit the document as a Microsoft Word document (i.e., .doc, .docx). The
objective of this project is to provide you with an opportunity to use this important and
very practical analytical tool. The chart does not have to be infinitely detailed, but the
key sequence of events should be charted as should the key conditions surrounding the
events. Keep in mind that the purpose of an events and causal factors chart is to aid in
identifying which conditions could be causal factors.
Use the charting procedures on pages 72–76 of your textbook to help you with this
assignment. In addition, refer to the example events and causal factors (ECF) chart in
the Unit IV Lesson for an example of this type of chart.
Part II: On a separate page, discuss the potential causal factors that are revealed in the
analysis. How do these causal factors compare to the causal factors found in the CSB’s
investigation report? Do you think more analysis is needed? This part of the assignment
should be a minimum of one page in length.
Upload Parts I and II as a single document. For Part II of the assignment, you
should use academic sources to support your thoughts. Any outside sources
used, including the sources mentioned in the assignment, must be cited using
APA format and must be included on a references page.
Useful hints: In Microsoft Word, you can use parentheses for events (events), square
brackets for conditions [conditions], and brackets for the accident {accident}; you may
also use a similar convention, such as color-coded text or the shapes that are available
within Microsoft Word. Whatever convention you use, be sure you provide some kind of
key.
