An accident investigation is an "after the fact" response. It is a process that uncovers hazards or problems that can be eliminated so that similar events will not happen in the future.

This workshop is an introduction to accident investigation through a hands-on, scenario-based workshop. It presents a practical approach to investigating workplace accidents by emphasizing how to find the root cause(s), conduct an investigation, and make effective recommendations to prevent similar occurrences from ever happening again. The course includes case studies and other examples to illustrate the concepts, as well as practical tools such as sample forms and checklists.

The target audience for this course is safety committee members, safety managers, human resource managers, supervisors and others who may be involved in accident investigation.
