WHAT ARE THE BASIC STEPS FOR CONDUCTING AN INCIDENT INVESTIGATION?

When starting an investigation, whether internally or outsourced, it’s important to look for more than the immediate cause of the incident. It’s critical to broaden the scope so that your organization can recognize and correct underlying issues that may be contributing to larger workplace safety problems.

Not sure how to conduct a workplace incident investigation? When strategizing, the goal of an investigation should be to determine the following:

  • Was a procedure or safety rule not followed? If so, why wasn’t it followed?
  • If a procedure or safety rule was not followed, was the safety training inadequate and in need of revising?
  • Was the root cause of the incident not previously identified?
  • If the cause of the incident was previously identified, why hadn’t it been corrected previously?

With decades of experience, OECS consultants will conduct a thorough incident investigation that will identify the root cause of your incident and we can help implement corrective actions that will improve workplace safety in your workplace. Contact us to get started!
