Crash and incident analysis form

Road traffic crashes have many causes. What may appear to be bad luck (being in the wrong place at the wrong time) can, on analysis, be seen as a chain of failures and errors that lead almost inevitably to the road crash. This is often known as the Domino effect. These causes can be classified at 3 levels: Immediate, Underlying and Root Causes.

To prevent crashes from happening in future, the organisation needs to put measures and controls in place at the underlying and root cause. If no measures are taken to improve time management, the staff member will continue to work under stress and speeding is likely to continue. 

A Crash and Incident Analysis Form can be downloaded below. It has been adapted from one produced by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OHSA).
