Course Overview

If a workplace accident results in an injury, or could have caused a serious injury, employers have certain responsibilities. Accident investigations help identify root causes and hazards, while finding ways to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.

Even in the most seemingly straightforward accidents, seldom, if ever, is there only a single cause. An investigation should be conducted by someone experienced in accident causation, experienced in investigative techniques, fully knowledgeable of the work processes, procedures, persons, and environment of a particular situation.

This in-depth course teaches you to examine underlying factors in a chain of events that end in an accident.
