This course will help you to maintain a safe and healthy environment by correcting situations that caused or could likely cause injury. When an accident occurs, it is important to report the occurrence so actions such as an investigation can be taken to make sure that a similar or more serious incident does not happen again.
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 organisations failing to remove one domino from the chain.
The course objective is to provide an understanding of how to thoroughly investigate accidents and get to the root cause. In this way effective preventative measures to beak the chain can be implemented in the future.
The course will then show candidates how to thoroughly investigate accidents and near misses, so that better preventative measures can be implemented in the future.

- What near misses and accidents are
