Overview

This program is aimed at those who need to carry out incident or personal accident Investigations and provide written reports of the findings, in line with industry standards, health and safety legislation or company procedures. This course is designed according to international industry standards and good practice.

Background

Hazards exist in all workplaces and in most situations there are effective measures in place to control them. However, incidents and accidents do occasionally occur – indicating that some of these controls are not as effective as they should be. It is often only a matter of chance whether an undesired event translates into a minor incident or costly accident. Indeed, incidents and accidents can be very expensive
-lost production, damage to equipment, compensation, increased insurance premiums as well as less tangible effects such as adverse effects on employee attitudes and public perception.
Learning lessons from incidents and accidents is vital to reduce losses to your business. In addition, regulatory authorities will take a very firm line if lessons could have been learned from previous incidents and accidents but weren’t.
