Accidents do not just happen—they are caused, and the key to accident investigation is to find the causes. The main reason for investigating any industrial incident is to prevent a recurrence of that accident.

Incident / Accident Investigations are essential to risk and safety management. Learning from disasters is critical to preventing future accidents and incidents. Incident / Accident Investigations provide a deeper understanding of risk and safety management and learning what went wrong can improve risk control measures. Finding the root causes of incidents/accidents is very helpful in controlling or eliminating such accidents in the future. To understand the root causes of accidents/incidents in an organization/workplace, and why and how it happened, investigators need to gather all related facts before and during incidents/accidents.

The first step in finding the cause of an accident is to examine the sequence of events that led up to it. Discovering this sequence is the goal of many of the analytical techniques in this field. In the next step, investigators analyze all different facts to find the root causes of the accidents. After that, they make recommendations. The purpose of this webinar is to light a spark in organizations to increase the systematic view of accidents/incidents investigation.

Key takeaways from this webinar:

  • Accident/Incident Investigation, root causes, systemic view

Presenter: Dr. Asieh Soltani, EIT Lecturer

"I am a unit lecturer and material provider at EIT. I have engaged with the HE team since Feb 2020. I am 40 years old, and I have graduated with BSc in Railway Engineering in 2005 from Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST) and an MSc in Civil Engineering - Disaster management in 2016 from Tehran University (UT). I have been awarded a Doctoral of Business Administration (DBA) from Tehran University (Sep. 2020 – Nov. 2021).

I have worked in various sectors of Railway Engineering since 2004 and have the experience of finishing several railway projects including design and construction.

As I have experience in bough railway and safety, I have cooperated with the railway safety sector as a member of the investigation team.
I am trying to develop a systemic view of safety in incident investigation."
