Accident Investigation in Businesses

What Is An Accident Investigation?

Accidents in the workplace can have serious consequences. Not only are they dangerous for those involved, but without a full investigation, the accident may happen again. To minimise the risk to employees and the employer, a thorough investigation has to be carried out to identify the cause of the accident, what led to it happening and what can be done to prevent it in the future. This is why we help conduct any accident investigation in businesses that need support.

What Is The Process For Accident Investigations?

The outcome of any accident investigation should be to update risk management processes, or implement steps if none exist for a particular situation. It’s not enough to log what happened if no action is taken afterwards.

Once an accident has taken place, the incident should be recorded with details of the event, the cause and who was involved. Any information on what action was taken to help the victim is also relevant.

This log should be made available to experts conducting an accident investigation, as they need to be able to identify where the accident took place and what factors were involved. Any risk assessments completed prior to this incident also need to be reviewed and updated to reflect and account for the specific situation.

Once the risk assessment has been updated with the relevant risks and recommendations of what needs to be done to lower the risk of the accident happening again. These actions need to be implemented immediately and our experts will help you to do that.
