COURSE DESCRIPTION: OSHA strongly encourages employers to investigate all incidents in which a worker was hurt, as well as close calls, in which a worker might have been hurt if the circumstances had been slightly different.

In the past, the term "accident" was often used when referring to an unplanned, unwanted event. To many, "accident" suggests an event that was random, and could not have been prevented. Since nearly all worksite fatalities, injuries, and illnesses are preventable, OSHA suggests using the term "incident" investigation.

Investigating a work site incident— a fatality, injury, illness, or close call— provides employers and workers the opportunity to identify hazards in their operations and shortcomings in their safety and health programs. Most importantly, it enables employers and workers to identify and implement the corrective actions necessary to prevent future incidents.

Key Training Areas include:

  • Principles of accident and incident investigation
  • Benefits of accident/incident prevention
  • Basic concepts of human factors
  • Accident /incident reporting and scope of investigation

ADDITIONAL INFO: Certificate of Participation Awarded. Training by experienced and qualified occupational health and safety professional.
