Course Introduction ›

Accidents in the workplace, no matter how serious or minor, should be investigated. Investigations can determine how and why these failures occur and can offer suggestions on how to mitigate them in the future. By using the information gathered during the investigation, employers can identify the health and safety hazards and how to eliminate them, preventing similar accidents from occurring.

Proper accident investigation and reporting is all about learning from experience in order to significantly reduce the risks of accidents happening again. Investigations should be conducted with prevention in mind as opposed to trying to place blame. The focus of the investigation should be on the cause and finding the solution for future prevention. Accidents are complex and most often adversely affect the completion of a task. Accidents may have several events occur that can be considered the cause. Despite their complexity, most accidents are preventable by eliminating the cause.

Investigations determine not only what happened, but how and why. Investigations will reveal a sequence of events that led to the accident and offer suggestions as to how to change the sequence to prevent a reoccurrence. It is critical to determine the ROOT CAUSE of an incident to see if similar circumstances exist elsewhere in the workplace. These must be eliminated. An accident investigation process should be defined: How will the notification process occur? What types of accidents will be investigated? Who is responsible and included in the investigation? How will corrective actions be tracked? How will the process be documented?
