Strengthen Incident Investigations with Safety Software
January 25, 2024
When a worksite incident occurs – whether it’s an injury, illness, fatality, or near miss – it’s important an employer conducts a thorough investigation to determine root causes and take steps to prevent a similar incident from happening again.
Depending on the jurisdiction or level of seriousness, an incident investigation may be conducted by a safety official or team. It can also involve managers, supervisors, workers, and others who provide their perspective, insight, and knowledge.
Investigators can get weighed down when attempting to gather and analyze relevant data – especially when utilizing paper forms and checklists, notepads and photographs, and other outmoded manual resources.
Upgrading to an advanced safety software solution can vastly improve the entire incident investigation process – from initial reporting to in-depth data collection, root cause analysis, and corrective action management.
Here are some key advantages of selecting an advanced safety software solution that’s right for your company or organization’s incident investigation management.
Create insightful reports (no coding required) with fill-in answers and checkboxes, digital photos and notes, and digital signatures collected in the field.
