Learn to Use Root Cause Analysis Effectively for Accident Causation and Investigation

Incidents and accidents are often used synonymously when describing a loss event. However, an incident is a near miss and may include an accident, but an accident involves a loss. The study of accident causation and investigation which includes a root cause analysis is imperative to protecting an employer from human loss and organizational losses. Liberty Mutual records that billions of dollars are lost each year because of accidents. Many workplace accidents are also related to OSHA violations. Therefore, the accident can cost even more by adding the price of an OSHA citation.

In the fiscal year 2015, 4,836 workers were killed due to work-related accidents, which equates to more than 13 deaths every day. Conditions that cause accidents are hazardous to the workers. Employers must investigate accidents and their causes to protect their company. Learning how to investigate an incident takes special skills, training and discipline. The intent behind investigations should never be to place blame, but to find the root cause of the incident. Employees must feel that they are a part of the investigation and not a suspect.

Join this session with expert speaker Sheldon Primus who will provide a detailed procedure for discovering the root cause of the accident. Accidents can cause an organization to lose valued resources including productivity and resources. An incident investigation which includes a root cause analysis will prevent and predict accidents and incidents.Sheldon will enlighten you to the importance of accident investigations, techniques, and understanding of the causes. He will also help you identify the true cost of an accident/incident, and what the best ways are for conducting an incident investigation.
