Jurisdictional safety authorities, administrators and regulators have consistently recognized that Incident Investigation is a critical element of an effective Safety Management System. Potential for death, injury, property damage, environmental and/or reputational impacts can result from accidents because THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED TO WORK.
