Accident Investigations: 5 Steps to Get To The Bottom Of Things And Preserve Your Bottom Line
|Date / Time:
OSHA requires you to investigate accidents that cause injury, but having an effective accident investigation process makes good business sense, too. Taking steps to prevent recurrence of an injury can increase production, reduce missed work days, and decrease workers' compensation insurance costs.
Collecting and analyzing evidence, finding the root cause, and implementing corrective actions are not difficult tasks, but too few employers have an effective, consistent plan in place.
What You'll Learn During This Webinar:
- What root-cause analysis is, and how it works
- The key reasons you must conduct thorough accident investigations
- Why accident investigations often fail, and how to avoid common pitfalls
- The elements that all accidents have in common
- Why you need to pay attention to near-misses
- The value of the accident investigation team, and how to get the best people on it
- Tips for interviewing witnesses and the injured employee
- How the "5 whys" accident investigation process works
- Finding the root cause using cause-and-effect analysis
- How to develop and implement corrective action recommendations

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
