When an incident or “near hit” happens at the workplace, an investigation by the emp loyer and the OH&S Committee must take place. In Provincially regulated workplaces parties are required to perform a preliminary investigation within 48 hours of an incident occurring and then a comprehensive investigation within 30 days. It is the investigators responsibility to gather the facts, objectively assess those facts, and arrive at corrective recommendations to prevent future incidents.Incident investigations are a fundamental function and responsibility of supervisors.
