In the event of an occupational accident, injury, illness or the near miss of an accident in the workplace, employers are required to perform a thorough, objective, professional investigation. The investigation’s purpose is to discover the reasons for the accident or near miss occurrence, and then rectify the situation so a further accident is avoidable or becomes less likely.

In addition, what to do when there is an accident, and how to investigate an accident.
