Accident Investigation

Introduction

Accidents and incidents are an unfortunate reality of the workplace, and it is both a moral and a legal requirement that businesses undertake a full and proper accident investigation to determine the true causes and rectify them. Our accident investigation course is aimed at those persons responsible for leading or participating in accident investigations, and aims to equip them with the broad base of skills needed to undertake the task along with how to reduce the risk of expensive litigation and criminal proceedings, and establish the importance of correct methods of accident investigation. It will also help those who may be involved in the process such as supervisors, managers and directors.


At the conclusion of the Accident Investigation course, delegates will have a good understanding of the basic accident investigation process and be able to take the initiative in finding out what went wrong, why, and how to make sure it does not happen again.


The course will cover relevant issues in relation to accident investigation including:-


  • Who should be involved in accident investigation and when it should start
  • What should be reported to the enforcing authorities (including RIDDOR)
  • The role of the enforcing authorities in accident investigation
  • Collecting and analysing evidence
  • Techniques to carry out basic interviews and compile acceptable witness statements
  • Understanding the concept of causal analysis - Immediate, Underlying and Root causes

  • Course Material

    Each delegate will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course, which will contain information, guidance and forms to assist accident investigations and investigators. The course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.
