How to Conduct a Quality Safety Investigation

Duration: 60 Minutes
Most employers care for providing a safe place to work for their employees and sincerely want to discover and rectify unsafe conditions before an accident occurs. However, in the event of an accident or a near miss of an accident in the workplace, employers are required to perform a thorough, objective, professional investigation. The investigation's purpose is to discover the reasons for the accident or near miss occurrence, and then rectify the situation so as to avoid future accidents.
Accident Investigation Training
Instructor: Teri Morning
Product ID: 500727

An employer has compliance responsibilities to make its investigations thorough, objective, professional and an honest attempt to fulfill its obligations to employees to provide work place safety. Without a trained investigator performing investigations, such a quality investigation becomes less likely. A solid safety investigation protocol also lessens the probability of an accident occurring due to unsafe conditions. In fact, an employer can either instill good fact-finding processes to uncover unsafe working conditions, or determine unsafe working conditions after the occurrence of repeated accidents.

Why Should you Attend:
When an accident occurs, some degree of confusion generally follows. If the person assigned to perform the root-cause investigation does not know how to conduct an investigation, then a good fact-finding that reduces the likelihood of future accidents becomes less likely.

Investigators need to learn how to perform a thorough and defensible safety investigation. A sloppy investigation is hard to defend compliance wise and may even incur greater liability upon an employer. A sloppy investigation may also increase the likelihood of a similar accident reoccurring. Even worse, such actions, or lack of actions, sends a message to employees that their employer doesn't take their safety seriously.
