Workplace Accident Investigation

Overview

Workplaces are complex sociotechnical systems and involve the interaction of workers with work systems that are made up of technical, social, organizational, and environmental elements.  All of which can contribute to accidents due to equipment failures, design defects, environmental issues, inadequacy of the safety programs, or lack of training. We consider whether OSHA/MSHA regulations and industry standards were met, whether worker training and safety programs are adequate, and the issue of any bypassed safety mechanisms.
