Accident Investigation Course Online

CPD accredited Accident Investigation course online with assessment and certificate.

Research suggests effective board leadership can deliver a 5 – 10% reduction in workplace accidents and ill health. Other HSE research suggests 70% of accidents can be attributed to management failure at some point along the chain.

To have an effective safety culture honest lessons need to be taken from accidents and near misses that occur. Domino theories of accident causation suggest accidents result from a chain of events like a line of dominoes falling over. When one of the dominoes falls, it triggers the next one, eventually leading to an accident, injury or other loss. Accident prevention strategies involve removing one of the dominoes from the chain. The root causes of accidents are usually organisational failing to remove one domino from the chain.
