Accident / Incident Investigation

According to Health and Safety Executive, it is estimated that up to 80% of accidents may be attributed, at least in part, to the actions of workers.  Unfortunately, typical safety investigations often make little or no attempt to uncover the underlying human causes or contributing factors that led to the accident.  In using traditional methods, the ability to identify and discover the human causes of an accident is lost along with the ability to prevent similar accidents in the future.

HOW HFS CAN HELP

HFS incorporates and applies human factors methodologies which explores the potential human breakdowns that may have occurred. These can include:

• Ineffective training;
• Inadequate supervision;
• Ineffective communication;
• Uncertainties in roles and responsibilities.

By going deeper than traditional safety investigation methods, HFS focuses on more effective future control measures which can pay dividends in terms of a more productive and safer workforce.
