Construction Safety Properly Conducted Accident Investigations Weekly Tailgate Topic (Canada) Mobile App
The Construction Safety Properly Conducted Accident Investigations (Canada) Weekly Tailgate Topic app is used to create open dialogue in a workplace about accident investigations.
How does it work?
The purpose of conducting an accident investigation is to find out what happened as a result of an incident that impacts, or has the potential to impact the health and safety of employees. An incident investigation is used to allow a company to take steps to prevent similar disasters in the future. A properly conducted construction safety accident investigation can ensure that a company is able to learn from its mistakes and mishaps to promote safety and health. However, a safety program where employees simply “go through the motions” during an incident investigation may not be helpful in promoting occupational safety. In order for accident investigations to be useful, an investigation must be thorough, and this weekly tailgate topic helps to bring accident prevention through proper investigation to the forefront of workers' minds.
A weekly safety meeting such as those included in the weekly tailgate topic series are helpful in promoting construction safety in the work place.
