Course overview

In an ideal world, incidents in the workplace – where things get damaged, or people get hurt – wouldn’t happen. But in reality, around 2.6 million nonfatal workplace injuries, and over 5,000 deaths occur every year in the USA. And workplace injuries and incidents have a huge impact on both businesses and families

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, workplace incidents must be investigated to discover the root cause and whether they were preventable. Incident investigators have to follow certain procedures and ask questions. But why is finding out the root cause important, when do incident investigations need to be done, and how do you carry them out?
