Incident Investigation

 

Snow, Slush, or Icy Roads Now Involved In Nearly One in Four Weather-Related Vehicle Crashes

Why is the proper performance of incident/accident investigation important? Beyond the requirement to do so as detailed by OSHA, The Joint Commission (TJC) and other regulatory bodies lies another main motivator: it can provide you a strong return on investment (ROI). To do so you should have a well-defined process for the Reporting, Recording and Responding to Occupational Injuries, Illnesses and Incidents (ROI). The related material that follows provides some detail regarding how to establish this process.
