Incident Investigation 101 – Nailing the basics! Following on from this morning’s presentation Pat will detail the approach you need to adopt when undertaking incident investigations if you want to dig down and identify what really caused the incident. The goal of a good investigation is not only to identify the causes but to also implement effective initiatives which prevent reoccurrence. Unless you do the former, you cannot do the latter, simple as that! The approach and techniques are simple but effective, and no matter what the size of your organisation it will significantly benefit from adopting such an approach in terms of reduced injury, property damage, and financial costs as well as improved operational efficiencies.
