Accident Investigation Health and Safety Courses

Even with all the health and safety training, precautions, preventative equipment, risk assessments and the like in the world, it is impossible to foresee and prevent every single eventuality. It may also be the case that certain actions were not performed correctly and were inadequate, or mistakes were made that should have been prevented.

By performing accident investigation, management can get to the bottom of exactly how and way the accident occurred, with the primary objective of using the information learned to prevent a similar incident from occurring again at some point in the future. It may also be the case that this particular accident was not too serious, and the lessons learned and the subsequent control and preventative measures put in place as a result of the investigation findings help to prevent a much more serious accident from taking place.

Health and safety is an ongoing process of continuous improvement. By attending accident investigation health and safety courses, you will learn how to perform a suitable accident investigation, as well as how to use the information gathered from investigating an accident or near-miss to improve the safety at your organisation and reduce the chances of it happening again.

Management may be completely unaware of issues leading to the accident. For example, many accidents occur as a result of workers taking shortcuts or not going through all administrative procedures required when doing tasks, such as not filling in paperwork when performing maintenance on dangerous machinery. Managers may think everything is being done as it should be, when in fact a dangerous culture of side-stepping safety controls has become established. It is only after investigating the accident that it becomes known that this was taking place, and could have been prevented if management had monitored work processes more closely.
