    Learning from incident (LFI) has become an area of special interest for
    companies working with hazardous processes. The effort is put on analyzing incidents and near misses and trying to prevent future similar negative events. The question of transferability of knowledge gained from one incident to another related or less related context is rarely addressed in the LFI practice in companies. The paper explores the conditions for transferability of LFI and ways to enhance the practice for better safety outcomes at two international companies in the energy sector.
