Accident/Incident Investigation Course Outline

General information on course

Recent statistics show that the average cost of an accident with respect to sick benefits and compensation amounts to approximately $78,000 per person, per accident. This alarming figure covers accidents that stem from all reported injuries: from paper cuts, right through to major injuries and deaths. Given that over 90% of all accidents could have been avoided if proper procedures had been followed and/or appropriate preventative measures taken, the need for a clear and concise training program is evident. Participants must complete and pass this course to receive their record of training (ROT).


Can be a half-day depending on the size of the group and participant interaction.

Who Should Attend:

This program has been designed to familiarize participants (supervisors, Joint Health and Safety Committee members, and selected workers) with the proper procedures for thoroughly investigating accidents or incidents.
