    Event highlights workplace accident follow-up procedures

    A serious workplace accident has happened and occupational safety and health professionals are faced with working alongside company directors to ensure a similar incident doesn’t happen again in the future.

    That was the scenario presented to those attending a joint meeting of three Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) branches.

    Aftermath of an accident

    The event – staged by the IOSH’s Merseyside, North Wales and Manchester and North West Districts branches, along with the Institute of Directors’ North West Region – highlighted the procedures that need to be followed in the aftermath of an accident at work.

    Using a hypothetical accident, those at the meeting in Widnes explored the business resilience of the employer involved as well as the incident’s legal implications and other ramifications.

    Lessons learned

    Recording the lessons learned from an accident to make sure the same thing doesn’t happen again, root cause analysis and the importance of having an effective workplace safety and health management system in place were among the topics covered.

    David Collins, who chairs the Merseyside branch of the IOSH, says the event has helped cement people’s knowledge about what procedures should be followed in the event of a workplace accident.

    Rachel Jones, North Wales branch chair, believes that businesses are increasingly viewing safety and health as being vital to what they do.
