An accident can be caused by hazardous conditions or unsafe work practices. But even when the reason seems obvious, the real "root cause" can often be something else. That's where "accident investigation" comes in. It examines an incident systematically to determine its true causes. That information is then used to update policies, procedures, or equipment to reduce the risk of that type of accident occurring again.
The point of an accident investigation is not to "assign blame" or to get anyone in trouble; it's to prevent people from being injured in the same way in the future. This program reminds employees of how investigations are conducted and how they can help in the process.
