Safety Module Program

Your company experienced an incident that resulted (or almost resulted) in a worker injury or illness…Now what?

As a responsible employer, you need to react quickly to the incident with a prescribed investigation procedure for finding the root causes and implementing corrective actions.

Quick and planned actions demonstrate your company’s commitment to the safety and health of your workers, and your willingness to improve your safety and health management program to prevent future incidents.

The purpose of accident/incident investigation is to provide employers a systems approach to help them identify and control the underlying or root causes of all incidents in order to prevent their recurrence.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that more than a dozen workers died every day in American workplaces in 2013, and nearly 4 million Americans suffered a serious workplace injury. And tens of thousands are sickened or die from diseases resulting from their chronic exposures to toxic substances or stressful workplace conditions.

The documents provided in this module will help your service center create a successful accident investigation program.
