Gathering evidence, including photographs and video footage
In order to get an accurate understanding of what happened during a workplace accident, it is crucial that as much evidence as possible is gathered. This could include taking pictures and videos of the scene where the accident occurred, in addition to any other physical pieces of evidence that might explain how the accident took place.
Our health and safety professionals will work with you to secure the site where the accident happened so that nothing gets disturbed or removed. We would also talk to any witnesses who saw what happened – like your employees – to see if they have photographs or video footage from right after the accident occurred.
Conducting interviews of key personnel
One of the most important aspects of any workplace accident investigation is interviewing key personnel. This includes employees who were directly involved in the accident, as well as those who may have witnessed it. By interviewing these individuals, our team can gather valuable information that can help you identify the root causes of your accident.
Our interviews can be conducted in a variety of ways, but it is important to note that they are always conducted in a respectful and confidential manner. On your behalf – we are prepared to ask questions that will help you understand what happened leading up to the accident, what happened during the accident and what happened after the accident. We will also ask about any safety concerns that your employees may have had leading up to the accident.
In short, the goal of our interviews is to gather as much information as possible. With this data, we can locate any possible dangers and take the necessary measures to keep your business safe.
Creating a timeline of events
It is vital to create an accurate timeline of events as soon as possible after a workplace accident happens. This will provide us with crucial details about what happened leading up to the accident, during the accident and afterwards. As mentioned before, eyewitness accounts will be key in completing this timeline correctly. With an account that covers all aspects of the event, we can pinpoint any potential hazards and take steps to prevent them from happening again in your business moving forward.
When investigating a workplace accident, it is important to review all relevant documents. This includes management plans and procedures, risk assessments, work instructions, training records and maintenance plans. Our team will examine your documents to see if they may have played a role in the accident. We will look for any potential hazards that may have been overlooked and take corrective measures.
Not only is it important to have these documents, but they must be accurate and current. We will advise on any updates or changes that might be required to help avoid future accidents.

Our health and safety professionals will review your past accidents and work with you to establish a plan of prevention for the future.
