Topic Background:

When an accident happens, some degree of confusion generally follows. If the person tasked to perform the root cause investigation does not know how to perform such an investigation, then a good fact finding that lessens the likely of such an accident occurring again becomes much less likely.

An employer has compliance obligations that its investigations are thorough, objective, and professional and an honest attempt to fulfill its obligations to employees to provide a safe place to work. Without a trained investigator performing investigations, such a quality investigation becomes much less likely.

A sloppy investigation is hard to defend compliance wise and may even incur greater liability upon an employer. Even worse, such actions, or lack of actions, sends a message to employees that their employer doesn’t take their safety seriously.

Yet, most employers care greatly for providing a safe place to work for their employees and sincerely want to discover and rectify unsafe conditions before an accident happens. Without good fact finding processes to uncover unsafe working conditions, repeated accidents are the only way unsafe working conditions will be discovered.

Even one person working unsafely can pose a hazard to many coworkers. Good safety accident investigation procedures can heighten safety awareness on a daily basis and cause safety to be in the front of everyone’s minds, every day.
