Risk Based Accident Investigations

Risk Based Accident Investigations

Incident and accident investigation and analysis is one of the more critical functions in safety; yesterday, and today.  Getting to the root cause has always been a challenge, but when successful, they have the best chance of preventing recurrence.  With the advent of more aggressive risk assessment and management programs integrated into today’s safety programs, safety professionals have even greater challenges in determining if their risk assessment programs are part of the root cause prevention results.
