Accident Investigation

Accident Investigation, Analysis Policies and Training Solutions

Accident causation describes the process leading to an accident, which may or may not, resulted in an injury, damage or loss. The identification of these factors which cause an accident is the first priority towards prevention.

A majority of business may not realise the extent of the costs of accident and the extent of injury and ill-health.

Accident investigation is the means to establishing how a reoccurrence of an accident can be prevented and of learning how to improve accident prevention solutions within a business by investigating the root cause.

There are economic and moral reasons for adopting pro-active accident prevention systems, and is regarded by large business as core business, not a side issue and should have the involvement and commitment of top management. Accurate accident records are an essential component of effective accident programme and systems and may be necessary as a defence in criminal or civil actions.
