Investigating Accidents & Incidents

Every year, thousands of people in Great Britain are killed or injured at work. Over 30 million working days are lost annually through work related accidents and illnesses.

Investigating accidents and incidents gives organisations an opportunity to find out what went wrong. Learning the lessons and taking action may reduce, or even prevent, accidents in the future.

This course will help you to adopt a systematic approach to determining why an accident or incident has occurred, and the steps you need to take to make sure it does not happen again.
