An accident is an unplanned event. It may or may not involve property damage or injuries. Studies show that approximately 85% of accidents are caused by an unsafe act, the other 15% by unsafe conditions.
Accident investigation plays an important role in determining the true cause or causes of an injury, property damage, or a near-miss. Once the cause(s) are identified then we can make changes to procedures and correct hazards to prevent future injuries or property damage of a similar nature.
