When accidents happen, it’s important to know why. Even when the reason seems obvious, the real cause may be more complicated. That’s where accident investigation comes in. It examines the incident systematically to determine its true root causes. This information can then be used to update policies, procedures or equipment to help make sure a similar accident doesn’t occur in the future.
This “Accident Investigation” training provides students with the information that they need to understand the goals of an accident investigation, the process itself, and how they can participate in the process to help make their workplace safer.
