About the course

Incident/Accident investigation and analysis are a critical element of safety management. The overriding purpose for an organization in carrying out incident investigation is prevention of similar incidents as well as seeking a general improvement in the management of health and safety.

A more careful investigation should have revealed that the accidents were caused by a lack of management control due to inadequacies in the SH&E programme, standards, compliance, monitoring of work, etc.

Who should attend?

This course is intended for those who are involved in accident and incident investigation and other personnel.
