Incident Investigation Training
Cut training costs, minimize time lost, and reduce the cost of compliance by having your employees complete their training online.
Unfortunately, accidents happen every day across Canada – this should be considered unacceptable and preventable by all employers and workers.
An incident can be defined as a sudden, unplanned event that causes or could have caused harm to a person or damage to property. Incidents can happen in any workplace, at anytime. In fact, across Canada there are approximately 250,000 lost-time injuries which occur each year—and that doesn’t even include near-misses or incidents that did not result in lost work time.
Investigations get to the root causes of the incident, so similar occurrences can be prevented and future losses in the workplace can be avoided. Therefore it is essential to ensure those who are responsible for investigating incidents are properly trained.
This course will provide managers, supervisors, committee members and health and safety representatives with a proper foundation and understanding of accident causation and prevention.
An investigation is conducted to meet legal compliance but more importantly to determine root cause and prevent reoccurrences. The investigation procedure consists of several components including; secure and manage the scene, provide notice to the authorities as required by law, identify and interview witnesses, analyze evidence, determine cause, recommendations, reporting and follow-up.
This online course will take participants through these fundamental components and will prepare them for conducting effective investigations in the event they are required to do so.
