Accidents happen, and, whilst they may never be completely eradicated from working life, the lessons we learn from their cause can significantly reduce the chances of them happening again.
Vital to this prevention is the application of robust and proven accident investigation and root cause analysis techniques.
During this course, you will learn about the core areas of accident prevention and investigation, with a focus on procedures and techniques that will enable you to arrive at the root cause of an accident.
