Webinar: ID# 1026356
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Immediately after an accident occurs, once first aid has been administered and all injured parties have been attended to, your next step should be to begin conducting an incident investigation.

It’s important to explain to your employees that the purpose of the investigation is not to find fault, but to find out what happened and understand how can be prevented in the future. Too often during a rushed investigation, investigators jump to conclusions about workers or situations, leading to the true cause of the accident not being addressed and, as a result, causing legal liability for the company.

Join us for an in-depth webinar led by Attorney Edwin G. Foulke, Jr., a partner with the national law firm of Fisher Phillips LLP and co-chair of the Workplace and Catastrophe Management Practice Group. He will discuss the steps involved in a comprehensive incident investigation, and factors to consider that will aid in preventing a reoccurrence. Register now to learn how to correctly handle an accident investigation which gets to the true root cause of the accident and successfully manage interactions with governmental agencies and the media while conducting your investigation!
