When workplace incidents happen, they must be investigated properly and by the right individuals. As incidents have the potential to result in injury, illness, and fatalities, it is important for the investigators to identify the root cause so future incidents can be prevented. Key areas to explore include the task, material, environment, personnel and management. By taking a deeper look into these areas, investigators can find out the facts, and create and implement a plan for corrective action.

Share this infographic on how to conduct an incident investigation in the workplace, including who should do the investigation, and how to conduct, conclude and communicate findings. See the fact sheet on incident investigation for additional information and resources.
