Incident investigations

Incident investigations are a crucial element in understanding, analysing, and learning from previous workplace incidents. Following an unexpected event our team at Smith Safety Solutions will conduct thorough investigations to determine the root cause of the accident and any contributing factors. This involves gathering evidence, speaking to those involved and analysing the workplace to identify areas of improvement, helping to implement corrective actions and prevent similar occurrences in the future. The incident investigation plays a pivotal role in fostering safer and more resilient work environments by addressing fundamental factors that lead to such incidents. 
What we do for you:

  • Carry out an independent and impartial accident investigation focused on causes, not blame.

  • Provide a detailed report of findings with corrective actions and recommendations.
