Safety Services Company
Our Accident Investigation Training Kit is a convenient and cost-effective training solution, perfect for in-house safety coordinators. This “Train-the-trainer” style workplace accident investigation kit is flexible for individual training sessions via computer, group sessions in a classroom setting, or out on the jobsite. Contact us today to learn more about learning to conduct workplace accident investigations.
The first step of our program is a self-paced training session. Employees complete a computer based training program at their own speed, and then take an automatically graded test. If computers are not available materials are printable for a traditional classroom or onsite training seminar.
The second step of training is in the field. Your appointed trainer will show trainees how to apply the information they learned in the classroom, familiarizes them with the equipment they will be using on their job, and the specifics of their workplace environment.
In this phase, the trainer evaluates the trainee’s knowledge and ability, and either signs off on certification, or retouches on topics that need more work.
Print and award certificates to employees that successfully completed the course.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that more than a dozen workers died every day in American workplaces in 2013, and nearly 4 million Americans suffered a serious workplace injury. Tens of thousands are sickened or die from diseases resulting from their chronic exposures to toxic substances or stressful workplace conditions. These events cause much suffering and great financial loss to workers and their families, and result in significant costs to employers and to society as a whole. Many more “near misses” or “close calls” also happen; these are incidents that could have caused serious injury or illness but did not, often by sheer luck. Practically all these harmful incidents and close calls are preventable.
OSHA requires that employers furnish their employees and place of employment free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees. (The General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act of 1970, 29 USC 654(a)(1) Employer Duties).
