Accident Investigation

Introduction :

The training aims to appreciate the importance of accident investigation; to equip investigators with the general knowledge and skills necessary to carry out such activity; to familiarize the systematic procedure in conducting an accident investigation, and to enumerate the existing OSH Rules and other OSH Issuances in line with compliance on the OSH Standards.

Accident / Incident Investigation is a technique in which the Investigation or Investigating Team proceeds procedurally, sequentially, and analytically to obtain details, circumstances, reasons, and facts behind the occurrence, based on the immediate causes and more importantly the root causes determined. This technique has to be learned through training and field exercises so that the trained/ skilled persons help the organization in reaching the facts behind the occurrence. The recommended measures help in preventing such or even more serious incidents in the future.

Trainees also come to learn the legal, financial, moral, societal, and technical reasons for conducting the investigation. It is worth noting that for significant incidents, there is a high-power judicial/ technical investigation that forms the basis for changes in the law of the land.
