Sometimes it is only when things go wrong that you realise that you may have a potential issue with your health and safety management system.
Reasons to investigate a workplace accident include:
most importantly, to find out the cause (immediate, underlying and root) of accidents and to prevent similar accidents in the future
to fulfil any legal requirements
to determine the cost of an accident
to determine legal compliance
to process workers' compensation claims
Incidents that involve no injury or property damage should still be investigated to determine the corrective action. The same principles apply to a minor incident and to the more formal investigation of a serious event.
We can offer an independent incident investigations service that can work in parallel with specialists, to identify and address any potential gaps and avoid future issues.
MRS Training & Rescue can work with you to assist in your incident investigation, or where necessary carryout investigations independently of the wider organisation. The level of investigation can be tailored to the severity or potential severity of the event.
For over 100 years, MRS has provided its specialist skills, experience and knowledge to effect the rescue and escape of mine workers from underground. Read more about our historic heritage, and how it has impacted on our present and future, by clicking here
