L&I offers workshops on workplace accident investigation

EVERETT - Workshops for employers on investigating accidents that occur in the workplace are scheduled at Labor & Industries offices in Bellingham, Everett and Mount Vernon between Aug. 21, 1996 and June 19, 1997.

The no-fee workshop is intended to help employers prevent future workplace accidents by identifying the causes of accidents that have occurred.

  • Benefits of investigations for employers and employees.
  • Identification of incidents requiring investigation.
  • Responsibilities of employee and company in the process.
  • Steps in the investigation process.
  • The tools necessary for documenting accident investigations.
