NAVIGATE WORKPLACE INCIDENT INVESTIGATIONS WITH AN EXPERT
Having an incident on your site is serious business. Not only because of the implications for the injured, but the other employees involved, OSHA investigators, your insurance company, attorneys, and so on. In the event an incident should occur, our Safety Associates will work with the leadership team to conduct a thorough investigation and provide simple corrective actions that will improve the overall health and safety of your workplace.
RESTORE SAFETY AND MAINTAIN NORMAL OPERATIONS
Our team will work to discover the root cause issue(s) that created the incident and what can be done to reduce/eliminate the risk in the future. Years of experience have taught us how to best manage situations like this and work toward the best positive outcome for all involved. Our process will help you avoid similar work-related injuries in the future and avoid fines and other OSHA penalties.
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!
As the Founder of Interscapes, I have come to appreciate just how important a strong safety culture is for our team. One safety incident can change things for a small company like ours. It’s because of this we’ve worked hard to be in compliance and go that extra mile to protect our employees and our company. Finding a partner like OECS has been a huge-value add for us. The quality of training, audits, OSHA support – and just being there when we have questions – has made all the difference. The partnership with OECS has helped strengthen our safety culture and keep us incident-free. The value we get for the money is second to none.
OECS has been a very reliable and professional company delivering (to us) a safety program that not only satisfies the requirements of OSHA but is useful in and outside of work functions. The ability to tailor a portion of the safety content to what we feel is important to our employees is invaluable. Past safety trainings have been repetitive and boring, but OECS has raised the bar significantly by keeping the content fresh, current, informative, and even entertaining. We would recommend OECS to any company that truly puts a value on safety.
