An accident in the workplace in the workplace can happen at any moment. They can create a lot of stress for you because thousands, even millions in Compensation claims may need to be paid out.

Also, investigations by the Department of Labour around the accident may even lead to your company shutting down.

So it is very important to ensure that you understand what to do and take action in order to minimise chances of a workplace accident occurring.

In understanding the following way in which an incident can lead to an accident, you can take necessary action in preventing a workplace accident from occurring:

Risk Assessments:

If you haven't performed a risk assessment correctly, you are at risk yourself your employees will not be able to function in a safe manner. 

As part of your control of loss in your risk assessment, you must train all of your employees of the safety rules and regulations you have put in place.

So by not carrying out a risk assessment and training your employees, incidents can very easily lead to accidents.
