In this course, Accident Investigation and Reporting you will learn how to investigate workplace incidents. You will be introduced to investigation concepts, what causes incidents, and what factors contribute to them. You will be shown effective techniques for gathering evidence and dealing with workers involved in what's often a traumatic situation. An outline of the investigation process will help prepare you to collect and analyze data, and to write reports and follow up.
