Principles of Accident Investigations

There are laws and regulations that require the investigation and reporting of certain types of accidents. Insurance requirements also lead to many Accident Investigations as do potential claims at common law. However, from an Occupational Health & Safety point of view, the main aim of Accident Investigations is not to fulfil these legal and insurance obligations, but rather to prevent recurrences of the same or similar accidents.

Accident Investigations and the Principles of Accident Investigations therefore should be regarded as an important part of accident prevention.
