SHSAtv Episode 24: Incident Investigations

The most severe and expensive injuries aren’t always easy to prevent!  If you’re responsible for investigating incidents in your workplace, you can help prevent future injuries by uncovering, and controlling, the root cause.

In this video, you will find out that the worker was trained, but other systemic issues created the dangerous situation he was working in, which ultimately led to the injury.

Injuries from lifting, reaching, slipping/tripping, overexertion, and repetitive motion account for over 25% of all injury claims in the service and hospitality industries and 43% of the costs. A common way to “prevent” these injuries is through watching safe lifting videos, and even practicing safe lifting (and other safe handling).  This is great!  But it’s not enough, and lack of training is not always the root cause.
