Accident Investigation


“Accident Investigation Training” is the course that will demonstrate how to properly investigate a workplace accident/incident, how to properly conduct interviews and treat witnesses, how to analyze and identify for root causes and implement corrective and preventive measures that will prevent accident recurrence.



Rationale:
Everyday, workers are exposed to both existing and potential hazards. At times, these exposures lead to accident. Once an accident happens, there will be a need to contain the impact of the accident and prevent similar events from happening again. Therefore, accidents must be thoroughly investigated and root causes must be determined. The course stresses proper investigative procedure and conveys an understanding of the basic skills needed by an investigator. The course focuses on the following topics: how to investigate an industrial accident, analyze facts, identify contributing factors or determine root causes, document the investigation, initiate both corrective and preventive actions to prevent future accidents, and follow up status of the measures that will complete the accident investigation process.

• Properly investigate and effectively analyze events leading to an accident;
