Accident and investigation
The term incident can be defined as an occurrence, condition, or situation arising during work that resulted in or could have resulted in injuries, illnesses, damage to health, or fatalities.
The term “accident” is also commonly used, and can be defined as an unplanned event that interrupts the completion of an activity, and that may (or may not) include injury or property damage. Some make a distinction between accident and incident. They use the term incident to refer to an unexpected event that did not cause injury or damage that time but had the potential. “Near miss” or “dangerous occurrence” are also terms for an event that could have caused harm but did not.
Please note: The term incident is used in some situations and jurisdictions to cover both an “accident” and “incident”. It is argued that the word “accident” implies that the event was related to fate or chance. When the root cause is determined, it is usually found that many events were predictable and could have been prevented if the right actions were taken – making the event not one of fate or chance (thus, the word incident is used). For simplicity, we will now use the term incident to mean all of the above events.
The information that follows is intended to be a general guide for employers, supervisors, health and safety committee members, or members of an incident investigation team. When incidents are investigated, the emphasis should be concentrated on finding the root cause of the incident so you can prevent the event from happening again. The purpose is to find facts that can lead to corrective actions, not to find fault. Always look for deeper causes. Do not simply record the steps of the event.
Reasons to investigate a workplace incident include:
- most importantly, to find out the cause of incidents and to prevent similar incidents in the future
- to fulfill any legal requirements
- to determine the cost of an incident
- to determine compliance with applicable regulations (e.g., occupational health and safety, criminal, etc.)
- to process workers’ compensation claims
The same principles apply to an inquiry of a minor incident and to the more formal investigation of a serious event. Most importantly, these steps can be used to investigate any situation (e.g., where no incident has occurred … yet) to prevent an incident.
Why look for the root cause?
An investigator or team who believe that incidents are caused by unsafe conditions will likely try to uncover conditions as causes. On the other hand, one who believes they are caused by unsafe acts will attempt to find the human errors that are causes. Therefore, it is necessary to examine all underlying factors in a chain of events that ends in an incident.
The important point is that even in the most seemingly straightforward incidents, seldom, if ever, is there only a single cause. For example, an “investigation” which concludes that an incident was due to worker carelessness, and goes no further, fails to find answers to several important questions such as:
- Was the worker distracted? If yes, why was the worker distracted?
- Was a safe work procedure being followed? If not, why not?
- Were safety devices in order? If not, why not?
- Was the worker trained? If not, why not?
An inquiry that answers these and related questions will probably reveal conditions that are more open to correction.
- Dress: Wear the polite short or long -sleeved shirt with pants.
- Helmet : any operation that work more than 4 m. above the ground, the worker needs to wear a hard helmet that has at least an industrial standard that appropriate to the operation. For an operation with high-voltage environment, the worker needs to wear the helmet at all time. Before using the helmet, the worker needs to check the physical condition the damaged helmet should be taken away and replace with a new helmet.
- Glove: For the operation that needs to touch and hold the items that danger to fingers and hands needs to wear the glove or the work with scrap metal or sharp. Workers should wear leather gloves or similar materials with similar properties. All gloves must be wrist-closed or at least cover the wrist. In general wiring practice and electrical wiring, Telephone cable wiring, installation of telephone or telephone equipment or work in contact with chemicals considers using gloves per appropriate and necessary of each work. When working on electrical or electrical equipment which has a voltage greater than 50 volts or an electrical device with a voltage less than 50 volts, but there is a high chance that the voltage will increase when the fault occurs. Workers must wear an electrically resistant rubber glove and use appropriate protective equipment as a protective device. The type of gloves used must fit the hand. Not tight or too loose And not a worn or broken glove.
- Shoes: In operation workers, must wear shoe or heel, which is not tight enough to change shape or not too loose, and if it is a rope make sure the tie is tight and tight enough to prevent slipping and those who work in areas that could be dangerous to leakage and where the ground is watery or damp. Wear safety shoes, rubber, electric leakage.
In the event of an injury the person(s) involved should:
- Seek first aid or medical attention as required
- Inform their supervisor as soon as possible
- Complete the Confidential Incident / Injury / Near Miss Report Form, or Needle-stick / Sharps Injury and email to [email protected]
- Assist their supervisor in the investigation and reporting on the incident or accident.
- The supervisor of the person(s) involved in the incident is required to:
- Ensure that any injured person is promptly attended to.
- Conduct an initial investigation into the cause of the incident.
- Notify and liaise with the local Safety and Health Representative and line management in relation to the incident. A Confidential Incident / Injury / Near Miss report form should be completed for every incident and emailed to [email protected]
- Notify and liaise with the local Safety and Health Representative and line management in relation to the incident.
- Ensure that all serious injuries are reported to the operation head by phone on (+6681) 8330736 or Security (+6692) 4541119 for after hours assistance.
- Serious injury, illness or disease reporting
All serious injuries, illness or diseases are reported to them as soon as possible. If unable to contact Greenwill Safety and Health, a 24-hour reporting line (+6681) 8330736 is available, for any injury at work involving an employee which resulted in the following:
- Fracture of the skull, spine or pelvis
- Fracture of a bone in:
- The arm, (other than a bone in the wrist or hand).
- In the leg, (other than a bone in the ankle or foot).
- Amputation of an arm, hand, finger, finger joint, leg, foot, toe or toe joint.
- Loss of sight of an eye.
Any injury other than those referred to above which, in the opinion of a medical practitioner, is likely to prevent the employee from being able to work again within 10 days of the day on which the injury occurred.
Who should do the investigating?
Ideally, an investigation would be conducted by someone or a group of people who are:
- experienced in incident causation models,
- experienced in investigative techniques,
- knowledgeable of any legal or organizational requirements,
- knowledgeable in occupational health and safety fundamentals,
- knowledgeable in the work processes, procedures, persons, and industrial relations environment for that particular situation,
- able to use interview and other person-to-person techniques effectively (such as mediation or conflict resolution),
- knowledgeable of requirements for documents, records, and data collection; and
- able to analyze the data gathered to determine findings and reach recommendations.
Some jurisdictions provide guidance such as requiring that the incident must be conducted jointly, with both management and labour represented, or that the investigators must be knowledgeable about the work processes involved.
Members of the team can include:
- employees with knowledge of the work
- supervisor of the area or work
- safety officer
- health and safety committee
- union representative, if applicable
- employees with experience in investigations
- “outside” experts
- representative from local government or police
The immediate supervisor should be on the team, the advantage is that this person is likely to know most about the work and persons involved and the current conditions. Furthermore, the supervisor can usually take immediate remedial action. The counter argument is that there may be an attempt to gloss over the supervisor’s shortcomings in the incident. This situation should not arise if the incident is investigated by a team of people, and if the worker representative(s) and the investigation team members review all incident investigation findings and recommendations thoroughly.
