An accident can be de ned as a sudden, unplanned event that causes or could have caused harm to a person, environment, or property. Accidents can happen in any workplace, at any time. Failure to properly investigate an accident and determine its root cause can be costly. A proper investigation helps to measure the e ectiveness of your company’s health and safety program, reveal hazards that were not identi ed during workplace inspections, examine actual events, and reveal potential trends. Our course is designed to provide managers, supervisors, and health and safety representatives with the information necessary to carry out their investigative duties effectively.
