Accident Investigation, Reporting and Recording

  • 5 CPD Hours Apex Building, Blackthorn Road Sandyford Business District D18 (map)

Many organisations have vague and sometimes ambiguous procedures for recording accidents and incidents in the workplace.  Inconsistencies in information, delays and failure to report are a few of the problems that commonly arise. This course is designed to give participants the WHY and HOW concerning accident investigation which they can implement in their own organisations. Moreover, we will focus on what to do with the lessons learned from meaningful investigations and reports.

This one-day course will show you how to distinguish both why an incident/accident occurred, but importantly, will also show you how to conduct accident investigations.  This would include Best Practice Methodology and include an interactive workshop focussing on accidents that have occurred in your working environment.  We will also focus on development of root and underlying causes of accidents.  In the afternoon we will also conduct a further workshop on the prevention of recurrence of such accidents.  On leaving the course, all attendees will take home a full course pack to refer back to, and 5 Structured CPD Points (if applicable)

  • Understand the importance of effective accident investigation
