Every day someone is injured, becomes ill from a work-related hazard or is fatally wounded while at work. According to OSHA, it is the employers’ responsibility to provide a safe workplace for their employees. Workplace hazards are the unfortunate reality of many industries, so employers must plan to provide sound training and quality protective gear for their staff. However, even with these precautions, injuries occur. Most workplace incidents are perceived as accidents, but the reality is the majority of them could be avoided.
Incident investigation is required to determine the root cause of any workplace accident or illness. An effective incident investigation policy will help staff and management know when to initiate an incident investigation, how to perform a root cause analysis and the steps required to gather pertinent information and documentation.
