Told Employee to Pay Attention – How’s Your Incident Investigation Process Performing?

Summary: Injury prevention process improvement is an on-going challenge, and when combined with limited resources, safety professionals should be continually exploring ways to improve existing processes. A key process to consider is incident investigation. For purposes of this paper, incident investigation is defined as the systematic course of action to help determine causation of workplace events leading to worker injuries or the circumstances that could have the potential to cause injury (near-miss). This paper will focus on the steps of investigating workplace events rather than the various techniques used to determine contributing or root causes.

What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.

No news articles found.
