Why should you investigate incidents at your facility? Hundreds upon thousands of accidents take place everyday injuring fellow employees without the completion of a proper incident investigation. The failure of our equipment, supplies, policies, procedures, and personnel cause most of the work related incidents. A thorough incident investigation not only determines what happened, but also how and why the incident occurred. Proper investigations should prevent similar or more disastrous incidents from occurring through recommendations to policies, procedures, personnel or equipment.
The State Office of Risk Management can assist state agencies with incident investigation as well as train your staff on proper incident investigation skills. The incident investigation training will provide your staff with the tools required to conduct proper investigations through group exercises and increasing their report writing skills.
If you have any questions about scheduling an incident investigation or would like training for your agency, please contact Nick Witkowski.
