EVENT MANAGEMENT :
EVENTS, INCIDENTS AND ACCIDENTS AT THE WORKPLACE
According to the International Labor Organization, a worker dies from an occupational accident or illness every 15 seconds. Every 15 seconds, 153 workers are victims of a work-related accident.
What is an accident?
The human impact and economic cost of workplace accident is quite significant: 2.3 million deaths per year and more than 4 percent of the gross domestic product.
Organizations are required to measure and investigate their incidents and accidents. According to the standard CSA Z1005-17 - Incident investigation, the term "incident" refers to “an occurrence, condition or situation arising in the course of work that resulted in, or could have resulted in, injury, illness, damage to health, or fatality”.
The word "Accident" is also commonly used and refers to an unforeseen event that prevents the completion of an activity and, as the case may be, includes or does not include physical injury and damage to property.
Some also distinguish between "incident" and "accident". Thus, an incident refers to an unexpected event that neither caused injuries nor any physical harm.
Why should an incident be investigated?
An incident is the result of a certain number of workplace failures. Incident management processes help to:
- Determine the causes of the incident and prevent similar events from occurring again.
- Meet all legal requirements.
- Establish the cost of the incident.
- Verify compliance with applicable regulations (for example, occupational health and safety, legal provisions, etc.).
- Enable the processing of workers' compensation claims.
Incident investigation is part of a comprehensive process for managing workplace accidents. Please refer to our article 5 Essential Steps for Managing Incidents in Your Organization, to know more about the different steps to be followed.
