OSHA stresses the importance of reporting and investigating incidents that cause injury or illness on your job sites. An incident is an occurrence during work that resulted in injury, illness, or damage to property. The purpose of an incident investigation is to uncover the root cause of the occurrence and assign corrective actions so that your employees feel safe at work. This is not about assigning blame.
The investigation and tracking of incidents allow your company to understand safety risks and proactively use training or interventions to prevent future incidents. In this program we will dig more into the proactive ways to address incidents.
The objective of Atlantic Training's Accident Investigation” video program is for employees to understand the steps that are taken in an accident investigation, and how important it is for employees to fully cooperate with any inquiry.
