The cost of accidents to business each year in human and financial terms is enormous. Determination of the root causes through effective reporting and investigation system is required to prevent recurrences of the accident and improve the management system. In addition, near misses (incidents) are opportunities for preventing accidents, and simple systems can be adopted to ensure that lessons can be learnt. A lot of information needs to be gathered quickly in a structured manner and shared with relevant personnel. Accident report and investigation data can help identify trends and further lead to a reduction of risk within the organisation.

Learning Outcomes
Participants will have complete documentation for root cause analysis necessary for accident reporting and investigation that is compliant with OHSAS18001 and best practice. The participant will be able to record accidents and near misses, determine their root causes, conduct an investigation, prepare reports and manage actions arising from the investigation. Different investigation techniques will be discussed, ensuring that the root causes of the accident or near miss were identified and appropriate actions put in place to prevent recurrences. The link between accidents and risk assessments and emergency response will be demonstrated. Examples of reports that can be used for management will be discussed and demonstrated. Statistical techniques for determining accident frequency and severity will be explained so that all the data collected can be analysed in detail and trends identified.

The trainers have several years experience in consultancy and training in Health, Safety and Environmental Management Systems in Europe, North America and the Middle East. They have assisted a large number of companies in achieving registration to OHSAS 18001, ISO9001, ISO14001 and ISO22000.
