Investigating Accidents

Thu 27 Apr 2017


Could you be asked to investigate an accident that happened in your department? Would you know how to go about it? And, having determined the causes, minimise the chances of it happening again? Anyone who may be asked to investigate an accident is welcome, but it is particularly relevant to those who supervise and manage others and Departmental Safety Officers. Video, case studies and discussion will be used to clarify why accidents and incidents should be investigated and how to tackle an investigation. We will look beyond the immediate causes of accidents to root causes.

Target audience
  • Departmental Safety Officers, Administrators, Managers and Supervisors
  • Anyone who may need to investigate an accident or 'near miss'
  • Further details regarding OHSS’ eligibility criteria are available

Number of sessions: 1
