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.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the language of incident investigations
- Establishing an incident investigation program
- Implementing a four-step systems approach to conducting incident investigations
- Learning how to document the investigation
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the OSHA Publication, “Incident [Accident] Investigations: A Guide for Employers”, December 2015.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 2 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this OSHA publication.
Upon successful completion of the quiz, print your Certificate of Completion instantly. (Note: if you are paying by check or money order, you will be able to print it after we receive your payment.)
