Accident Investigation Guide

Image of the cover of the Accident Investigation Guide 2003 EditionSupervisors and managers are responsible for ensuring the safety and health of employees and for maintaining a workplace free from recognizable hazards. All too often, accident investigations reveal existing hazards that are not adequately addressed or that have been unrecognized. Accident investigations can provide management with information that can prevent injuries and property damage in the future.

The Accident Investigation Guide: 2003 Edition (0367–2808–MTDC) details information on the investigative process and associated tasks, such as preparing the factual and management evaluation reports, documenting witness statements, interviewing witnesses, photographing evidence, and conducting accident boards of review. This guide also includes the protocol for investigating wildland fire shelter entrapments and deployments, and aviation accidents and incidents.
