Accident Investigation


A key element of the Injury and Illness Prevention Program is Accident Investigations. A thorough and properly completed accident & incident investigation focuses on understanding why an accident or near-miss occurred and the written document will include actions that can prevent this situation in the future. 

Accident Investigations should be conducted by employees who are trained in completing a thorough investigation of all accidents and near misses to identify causes and needed corrections.
