If your business is affected by an accident the repercussions can be enormous in terms of human suffering, fines, investigations, fees and loss of reputation. Thankfully, workplace accidents are less common now than they were in past, but that can make accidents even more of a shock when they do happen.
At Pragma, we have found that what businesses affected by accidents want more than anything is to understand why the accident happened, how to help those affected and how to move on.
Our experts’ experience in accident investigation spans 30 years in roles as advisers to business, as expert witnesses and as prosecutors with the HSE.
If you would like to have discussion with one of our experts about how we help you to understand and move on from a work related accident please get in touch, we would be pleased to provide you with preliminary advice based on our wide ranging experience.
We have the Health and Safety expertise to conduct a thorough, balanced and independent assessment of the circumstances surrounding a fatal or serious accident.
Our team have a wide range of industry experience and have investigated accidents in many sectors and in a wide variety of premises.
We can assist with carrying out fatal and serious accident investigations, supporting clients in dealing with HSE Improvement Notices and clients defending civil claims.
Our Managing Director was part the Working Group that produced the IOSH guidance “Learning the lessons: How to respond to deaths and other serious incidents”.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and The Social Security (Claims and Payments) Regulations 1987 explain that you have a responsibility to carry out accident investigations to establish the background behind the accident, so that you can take the required measures to minimise the likelihood that similar incidents will happen again.
