An unfortunate by-product of running a business, especially with any type of heavy machinery is that there is bound to be an accident. It is at this point that learning why the accident occured so there is not a repeat is paramount. That is why it is vital to conduct a thorough Accident Investigation. We have OSHA Safety Training Products to do just this. Our training products on "Accident Investigation" show employees steps that are taken in an accident investigation, and highlight how important it is for employees to fully cooperate with any inquiry. They also point out that while an investigation's focus is to determine the cause of an accident, the overall goal is to prevent similar accidents from happening again. Topics covered include accident investigation, learning about the root cause, the importance of investigative interviews and much more. With booklets, posters and games, learning doesn't have to be a snooze!
Thousands of accidents occur throughout this country everyday. The failure of people, equipment, supplies, or surroundings to behave or react as expected causes most of them. Accident investigations determine how and why these failures occur. By using the information gained through an investigation, a similar, or perhaps more disastrous, accident may be prevented. It is important to conduct accident investigations with PREVENTION in mind, not just to take down facts and turn them into your administration.
