Hazardex 2019 Conference Presentations - Gaining Value from Investigations

Author : Joe Murphy - Head of Health, Safety, Security and Wellbeing, Southern Water

14 December 2018

Accidents in the workplace are never welcome, but rather than being something to brush under the carpet, these incidents offer businesses the chance to improve and right wrongs for the future. Key to this is ensuring that investigations can be carried out thoroughly and accurately, the groundwork for which can be laid within the culture of an organisation. 

This involves asking tough questions, digging deep into the events leading up to the incident, creating a blame-free environment and ensuring there is the right culture within the organisation to ensure a free flow of information.
Murphy will discuss how this sort of environment can be created and other steps businesses can take, like providing training for proper incident investigation techniques such as interviewing, protecting evidence and taking witness statements.
