Root Cause Analysis In Accident Investigations

Webinar: ID# 1000884
About This Course:
Even with a great safety system in place, there is always a risk of injury or a near-miss incident. When this happens, steps must be taken to prevent a future occurrence. By conducting a well-planned and organized accident investigation, we can determine what really caused the incident and help to prevent it from re-occurring.

We know that OSHA requires that employers investigate accidents, but having an effective accident investigation process just makes good business sense, as taking steps to prevent recurrence of an injury accident can increase production, reduce missed work days, decrease workers' compensation insurance costs and, above all, keep your workers safe.

Additionally, the results of an effective accident investigation can be invaluable if you end up in court over an injury

This detailed and interactive training session takes you through the steps of an accident investigation, shows you how to find the actual cause, and how to develop effective corrective actions.
