In the past, an unplanned, unwanted event was referred to as an “accident.” Accident suggests an event was random and could not have been prevented. Since nearly all worksite fatalities, injuries, close calls and illnesses are preventable, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) suggests using the term “incident” investigation.
Investigating a worksite incident provides employers and workers with the opportunity to identify hazards in their safety and health programs. Most importantly, it enables employers and workers to identify and implement corrective actions necessary to prevent future incidents. When a shortcoming is identified, it is important to ask why it existed and why it was not previously addressed.
• If a procedure or safety rule was not followed, why was the procedure or rule not followed?
• Did production pressures play a role, and, if so, why were production pressures permitted to jeopardize safety?
• Was the procedure out of date or safety training inadequate? If so, why had the problem not been previously identified? Or, if it had been identified, why had it not been addressed?
Our training material provides helpful information for determining the factors contributing to an incident, as well as helping you to develop effective corrective actions to minimize the consequences from future incidents.
