Accident & Emergency Management and Investigation

Despite our best endeavours, sometimes things go wrong. It is therefore essential that your accident and emergency management programme is effective, thorough, understood by your employees and is practiced on a regular basis. For example, an employer must provide first aid equipment and facilities appropriate for the circumstances in his/her workplace- as a minimum a suitably stocked first aid box and person to take charge of first aid arrangements.

Reporting accidents and ill health at work is a legal requirement under RIDDOR. The enforcing authorities use this information to the see the big picture of where injuries, ill health and losses are occurring and it is therefore essential that your reporting process is robust and covers the key areas outlined in HSE Guidance.

Similarly when things go wrong it is essential that you learn from the incident to prevent similar situations happening again. A good accident investigation will determine what happened, establish the immediate & root causes, examine unsafe acts and unsafe conditions, and identify practical actions to prevent recurrence.

A good and thorough investigation can also mitigate against criminal and civil liability - especially where there is a serious accident and the enforcing authority are brought in to investigate, or there is a civil claim against the organisation and the insurers are involved.

Clarity Risk Management provide a comprehensive and thorough accident investigation process - which in two separate occasions was praised by the investigating HSE inspector and as a result prosecution against the organisation and senior management was averted.

We can also train your managers to investigate and manager workplace accidents.
