Our accident investigation training course allows organisations to cut their costs without cutting corners or compromising on safety. If you need to make a business case for safety training, we've outlined the key reasons why this occupational safety course is good for business.

  • This course has been designed to help businesses to comply with legislation including the (RIDDOR) Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013
  • Your business will benefit from improved accident and incident analysis and reporting, helping to identify root causes
  • Undertaking accident investigation training makes sound commercial sense, helping to guard against future incidents
  • Companies undertaking proper accident investigations experience a reduction in incidents
  • The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that the ratio between insured and uninsured costs arising from accidents lies in the range of 1:8 to 1:36. So in the worst case, for every £100 recovered from the insurer, the business loses about £3,600

  • Our in-company accident investigation course can be tailored to specific requirements, ensuring that everything delegates learn is relevant to your business needs

  • Ensure employee compliance with health and safety policies as well as legal requirements
