Never do an accident investigation without preparing THIS first

by , 12 August 2014
Have you ever done an accident investigation and everything just seemed to go wrong? You couldn't keep track of who you spoke to and what they said. That was before the mess you made when you tried to collect physical evidence.

This probably happened because you didn't prepare one very important document. A document that'll ensure your investigation has a successful conclusion.

Let me explain...


Prepare your Investigations Findings Report document before you start your accident investigation

Your Investigations Findings Report document is a very important document. It's the one that enables you to clearly record the evidence you find during your accident investigation. 
You need to draw this up before there's even an accident. This will help you when one happens, so you can quickly getting everything you need together for an investigation.
When you create your Investigation Findings Report, here's what you should include.

Do your first aiders know what it is?

Include these things when your create your Investigations Finding Report

1. Include different sections for witness testimony evidence and physical evidence.
2. Under witness testimonies, include:
- Who the witness is (Name and job);
- When you spoke to them;
- Where they were during the accident; 
- Were they involved in the accident;
- If so, what injuries do they have; and
- Their description of what they saw when the accident happened.
3. Under the physical evidence section, include:
- What the evidence is;
- Where you found it;
- The condition it was in; and
- Where it was in relation to the accident scene.
4. Ensure there's a space for the investigator's name and the date of the investigation.
This document will help you and the rest of your investigation team collect the information you need to come to an accurate conclusion about what caused the accident.
PS. Are you responsible for compiling your SHE file?
Are you struggling to keep up-to-date with all the paperwork?
Do you waste your time formatting all the documents?
Are you stressed out about all your legal requirements?
Of course you are. You have enough on your plate already, and keeping up with paperwork isn't on the top of your to-do list. But unfortunately, it's part of your job because it's a legal requirement. And, you've answered 'YES' to at least half of the questions above.
