Workplace Accidents Investigation

Workplace Accidents and Incident Investigation: Your Needs


Safety is the prevention of accidents and incidents.  In the event of a workplace accident causing injury you will need to rapidly establish the causes through thorough investigations. You may want to implement immediate preventive measures or identify medium term improvements to plant and machinery. Corporate or statutory investigations may take place, requiring expert knowledge. A well-structured investigation is the foundation for future, sustainable safety.

Workplace Accidents and Incident Investigation: Our Approach

Studies show that even apparently simple accidents have multiple causes. Understanding industrial accidents typically requires an analysis of the Human, Technological and Organisational aspects in your workplace. Our approach is to evaluate each aspect to identify direct and contributory causes. We use our refined causation analysis methodology to identify the technical, personal and system aspects leading to accidents. Our professional approach has been implemented across all levels in our customer organisations.
