What will I be able to do on completion?

All incidents must be investigated to determine the underlying causes and identify failures of occupational health & safety management. When action is taken to address each of the factors found as a result of investigation, not only is the likelihood of a similar incident minimised, it may be instrumental in preventing accidents of a different nature in which one of these factors may play a part.

How will I be assessed?

Not applicable

Until the causes of workplace accidents and ill health are understood and managed, improvements will not be made in the protection of employees from work activity hazards. Employers already have a duty to investigate and report a number of such matters and that duty is being extended to cover all workplace accidents, occurrences of work related ill health etc.
