No one wants an accident to happen in their work place, but unfortunately they do happen. What you do next is important. The first priority is to make sure that if people have been injured they are treated promptly for any injuries and relatives are kept properly informed. After this it is important that you learn from the accident and take the steps that will reduce the risk of a similar accident happening again. Key to doing this is conducting a comprehensive investigation of the accident or near miss. Too many people assume that they will know what to do when the time comes to investigate an accident. Unfortunately this is rarely the case. A poorly conducted investigation could, as well as reducing the learning from the accident, make the outcome of any legal action more costly. This is a comprehensive training course delivered in an interactive and practical style that leaves you cofident that if there was to be an accident you really would know how to investigate it properly
