Incident management and investigation fundamentals

Who should attend

Those that work in Health & Safety

Synopsis

Eversheds Sutherland and the Women in Health and Safety network is holding a joint event on incident management and investigation fundamentals. As well as being an opportunity to share our learnings on this issue, the event also forms a get together for the network in advance of the Christmas break and an opportunity to network with others in the health and safety profession. If you are not a member of this free network, which has over 3000 members, you can sign up as part of registering for this event.

We know that a common feature before a serious accident is often a number of less serious incidents or near misses and that properly understanding the causes and learnings of these ‘weak signals’ is fundamental to preventing re-occurrence.

Join Julia Thomas (former HSE prosecutor) and Amy Sadro (defence specialist) for an insight into how the HSE expects the investigation process to look and a discussion on effective investigation techniques.
