If a workplace incident results in an injury, or could have caused a serious injury, both employers and WorkSafeBC have certain responsibilities. Incident investigations help identify the cause and hazards, while finding ways to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.
This course has been developed to assist new and ongoing members of a JHSC, as well as workplace supervisors, to understand the processes involved in incident investigation. You will learn to undertake preliminary investigations, take interim corrective action, perform a full investigation, and apply the findings of your investigation to create a safer workplace in the future; you will also learn how, when, and to whom incidents should be reported. Learning modules incorporate WorkSafeBC regulatory requirements and are relevant to all BC industries.
