201105CRAINV | Incident Investigations CRANBROOK

Kelly West No Comment

When an incident or “near hit” happens at the workplace, an investigation by the employer and the OH&S Committee must take place.  This legal requirement has been solidified in legislation passed in May 2015, with Bill 9, in response to the tragic mill explosions in 2012.  Committees are now required to perform a preliminary investigation within 48 hours of an incident occurring and then a comprehensive investigation within 30 days.

    Incident investigation is a serious matter. It is your responsibility to gather the facts, objectively assess those facts, and arrive at corrective recommendations to prevent future incidents.

      Incident investigations are a fundamental function and responsibility of supervisors and Joint Health and Safety Committees but, often we don’t have the proper insight on how to conduct an effective investigation.

        This course will provide you with the opportunity to improve your investigative skills, determine ‘root causes’ and develop effective recommendations.

          In this course participants will:

            • Learn the new legal requirements for incident investigations.
            • Examine the principles of incident causation.
            • Learn how to conduct a proper investigation by gathering the facts.
            • Learn how to analyze the results of your investigation and determine contributing factors and root causes.
            • Learn how to prepare reports and develop effective corrective actions.
            • Conduct a class incident investigation and put theory to practice.

            Note: New (Provincial) legislation is clarifying the meaning of “participation” in section 174 of the Act (Effective April 2017)
