Incident Investigation

Workers, both indoors and outdoors, in services, transportation, agriculture, construction, and other industries may be exposed to incidents that if misused can lead to severe injuries, or death. There are factors that can cause the employee to be more at risk. This training helps to identify factors that can cause harm to the employee and potentially save lives.
