Unfortunately, accident investigations can take the path of least resistance, with the goal being to complete it quickly and move on. This can result in the victim being blamed for reckless behavior and in non-fatal cases, the recommended resolution is more training for the victim.

This white paper uses a real world, recent occupational fatality investigation to help you transform the way you conduct workplace accident investigations. It covers the following:
- Accident investigation team members and preparation
- Critical pieces of an effective investigation
