For the health and safety arrangements of any organisation to be completely effective they must include efficient arrangements for the investigation of accidents and ‘near misses’. It is widely accepted that for every preventable accident, there are hundreds of incidents that could have led to an accident. These must be identified and investigated.
The aim of the investigation is not to apportion blame but to identify a cause, in order for arrangements to be made to prevent a re-occurrence and ensure a safer work environment.
At Lawes Marsh Limited we have the expertise to thoroughly investigate all incidents in the workplace, to identify causes and to offer recommendations for health and safety improvements.
Incident investigation provides an important part of any overall health and safety system. To discuss how we may help you in more detail, please contact us.
