How To Perform High Quality Safety Investigations

This webinar will cover the OSHA compliant policies, procedures and protocols you must have in place to perform a thorough, objective and professional investigation in the event of an accident or the near miss of an accident in the workplace.

When an accident occurs, some degree of confusion generally follows. If the person assigned to perform the root-cause investigation does not know how to conduct an investigation, then a good fact-finding that reduces the likelihood of future accidents becomes less likely.

Investigators need to learn how to perform a thorough and defensible safety investigation. A sloppy investigation is hard to defend compliance wise and may even incur greater liability upon an employer. A sloppy investigation may also increase the likelihood of a similar accident reoccurring. Even worse, such actions, or lack of actions, sends a message to employees that their employer doesn’t take their safety seriously.
