Accident Analysis Form

(also for "near misses")

Immediately after all workplace accidents (and near miss incidents), supervisors must complete an accident analysis.  Please use this Accident Analysis Form. The purpose of an accident analysis is to identify root causes of accidents and to create and implement action plans designed to prevent similar accidents from recurring in the future.   If you have any questions, contact any member of the Workplace Safety Committee.  Send completed forms to the Human Resources Office.
