A number of important skills are involved in conducting an effective investigation. An effective investigation can help you prevent similar incidents and future injuries. Always keep in mind that effective incident investigation means fact-finding, not fault-finding.
Training in incident investigation is strongly recommended

Overview of an incident investigation process
Select an investigation team
By identifying a team of investigators, you can respond quickly to any incident, injury, or illness. The team should be representative of your workplace and have a cross-section of skills and abilities. It should be large enough that it can still be operational if one or two members are absent at any time.
Train your investigation team
Training your team in advance can help ensure your investigations are effective, your people have the necessary skills, and your people understand their roles before to being faced with an actual incident. See our listing of SAFE Work Manitoba training providers.
