Accident Investigation Training






Understanding and identifying the real cause of an accident is paramount in minimising workplace incidents. This nationally recognised accident investigation course covers the processes involved in systematically investigating incidents, and identifying the underlying cause or real cause of the accident or incident.

It’s critical to learn from the past and prevent accidents from occurring in the future.

When a work-related accident or injury occurs, an investigation must be conducted to ensure accurate information is obtained. Incident investigations are intended to determine the cause of an incident, to identify unsafe conditions or acts and to recommend corrective actions so that similar incidents don't occur in the future.

When incidents are investigated, the emphasis should be concentrated on finding the root cause of the incident so that you can prevent the event from happening again. Completing an effective accident investigation will help identify safety controls or safety training that will reduce the risk of additional injuries. As a result of the investigation, corrective action should be recommended to prevent a recurrence, and to improve the overall safety of the company.
