Course Description

Understanding accident theory and the incident investigation process are essential in determining why workplace incidents occur and how to prevent re-occurrences. By providing categories of causes, accident theory helps explain how accidents are caused. Incident investigation answers the: who, what, why, when, where and how so that re-occurrences can be prevented. Through examples and case studies, gain an overview of the most important theories, their strengths and weaknesses, and how to select the best model and best methods for each investigation.
