Training Overview

Do you have the skills to get to the root causes of an accident!

Workplace accidents can injure or kill people, cause damage, impact morale, production, your company's reputation and financial bottom line. No employer wants to incur these costly losses. That's why if an incident occurs, a thorough investigation should be conducted to determine and address the root causes to prevent recurrence in the future.

Unlike typical classroom training, The Effective Investigator: A Practical Case Study takes participants out of their seats and puts them into the centre of the action. It provides an ideal opportunity to practice and improve investigative skills in a safe setting. Through active engagement in a mock investigation case study, participants are coached along the "route to the root" from initial scene management to formulating recommendations for corrective action.

This unique hands-on learning experience sends participants back to the workplace more confident, capable and ready to conduct effective and impactful investigations.
