Incident Investigations

Why do Incident Investigations ?

Very few accidents occur spontaneously. In the majority of cases the actual incident that causes the accident is the culmination of a series of underlying events and failings, often starting with a failure of management control. By investigating accidents thoroughly these root causes can be identified and measures put in place to prevent recurrence.

What is an Incident Investigation ?

A thorough examination of the events and circumstances leading up to and including the incident and its consequences to establish the facts and identifying the immediate and underlying root causes.
