Finding the cause of safety incidents is the first step in preventing similar incidents in the future. Safety Management Group’s safety professionals have extensive experience at investigating workplace accidents, fatalities, and other incidents involving injuries or near misses.
When a serious workplace accident occurs, it’s imperative that companies conduct a prompt and thorough accident investigation. An incomplete, inaccurate or biased investigation can aggravate the problem and increase your potential liability. Our safety professionals understand OSHA and know how to properly conduct the workplace investigation and perform interviews, even in high-profile cases receiving media attention.
In addition to preventing future incidents, a thorough investigation will allow your company to fulfill any legal requirements, determine the cost of an accident, determine compliance with applicable OSHA safety regulations, and process workers’ compensation claims. Incidents that involve no injury or property damage should still be investigated to determine the hazards that should be corrected.
