Accident Investigation
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces the concepts of accident (incident) investigation.  Its purpose is to present a systems approach to help identify and control the underlying or root causes of all incidents in order to prevent their recurrence. 


No matter how careful we are, there is a likelihood that we will have an accident some time in our professional career.  Accident investigation allows us to find the root cause, so we can work to prevent recurrence.  Assigning a cause without a thorough investigation is not acceptable for the law enforcement officer, nor is it acceptable for the engineer in our litigious world.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility operators who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the incident investigation process.
