The workplace and life, in general, are full of hazards everywhere we
turn. Traditional first aid courses are designed for low-risk urban
settings where risk is minimal. In the workplace though, we know that
both the likelihood and severity of illness or injury are greater due to
the nature of the activities we engage in and the environment we work
in. The situation is then compounded by the extended period of time to
definitive care, meaning YOU as the responder must be able to deal with
the casualty for longer.

Workplace accident and Incident investigation can serve many purposes
from prevention to litigation defense.
Many courses teach basic methods however at Cobalt Safety we have
preformed over 575 critical or fatality events in both Provincial
Prosecutions and Client defense investigations many courses are missing
the mark when it comes to workplace investigations.
Basic workplace investigation can be taught by many people but the fine
art of interviewing people, the PEACE method of investigation and what
evidence to obtain for due diligence, what questions to ask and how to
determine direct causes, contributing causes and root causes of
incidents takes some training.
This course is a full day course and trains the following information;
Hazard and Risk Identification
The Internal Responsibility System as it relates to investigations
What is Due Diligence and how does it relate to investigation
