FIX THE PROBLEM – NOT THE BLAME

by Dr. Isabel Perry, “The Safety Doctor”

When accidents happen, people often look first at assigning blame somewhere instead of trying to find out what happened and why it happened.  Should an accident happen to you, or around you, first focus on:

 

¨      Taking care of the immediate situation

¨      Determining what happened

¨      Figuring out how or why it happened

¨      Seeing what can be done to keep it from happening again in the future

 

Full disclosure of the facts relating to the event is important to making sure that there is not a recurrence of the same or similar event in the future.  All accidents, even very minor ones, should be investigated thoroughly.  A seemingly minor accident could be a sign that there is a potential for a larger accident to occur.  It is important to stay calm throughout the process.

 

Accident reports are important for future prevention.  When added to company wide or nationwide statistics they can form an impressive database of how successful we are being at keep our workforce safe.
