Details and specs

Every year in Canada nearly one-third of a million workers is injured on the job. For workers and their families, these work-related accidents involve unnecessary pain and suffering. For employers, they involve millions of dollars of unnecessary losses resulting from lost time, machine down time, and compromised product quality, as well as decreased employee morale and prosecutions under the law.

Canadian Labour Reporter Special Report: Accident/Incident Investigation in the Workplace presents a prevention-oriented and practical approach to accident and incident investigation and is designed to give employers a concise guide to the legalities and best practices around accident investigation in the workplace. Incidents include those that have the potential to cause injury, as well as those that result in actual injury.

Practical tools are presented throughout to help train staff and ensure that a sound accident investigation process is in place and is executed properly. This book will help you develop first-rate accident investigation skills and help your employees understand how their cooperation can prevent future accidents from occurring.
