Accident / Incident Investigation

OSHA strongly encourages employers to investigate all incidents in which a worker was hurt, as well as close calls (sometimes called “near misses”), in which a worker might have been hurt if the circumstances had been slightly different.  Fox Valley Safety’s detailed accident investigation training takes you through the steps of an accident investigation, shows you how to find the actual cause, and how to develop effective corrective actions.

Accident / Incident Training Includes:

  • Defining an accident / incident / near-miss
  • Non-punitive nature of reporting accidents and near-misses
  • Gathering facts
  • Interviewing employees
  • Determining causation – surface and root
  • Analyzing data and implementing corrective actions

Encourage your employees to report all incidents and near-misses, no matter how small.  They are learning opportunities!
