When an incident arises within the workplace, it is crucial to investigate the root cause of it. Examining is it due to human errors or other underlying factors that maybe direct and indirect causes of the incident.

For example, when an incident occurred due to a worker’s carelessness, there are few factors that need to be considerate such as:-

Is the worker being distracted? What are the causes of it?
Work protocol is being followed properly – yes or no?
Are devices and equipment being used properly?
Is the worker have sufficient knowledge and skills to conduct the task?

Questions such as these would provide more insight of the incidents and able to identify the causes of it in a bigger picture, and further prevent same accident from repeating again.

Accidents such as these may causes a lot of damages and cost to the organization, therefore the importance of studying incidents occurs within the workplace so that it can be a preventable incident.


When conducting investigation, there are few elements that can be breakdown to which is Task, Material, Work Environment, Personnel and Management.

Task – is more on questioning the work procedure and operation of conduct. Questions such as “was the work procedure being followed properly, are the proper tools being provided to handle it, safety devices working properly“.

Material – to identify possible causes resulting from equipment itself. Questions such as “was equipment in poor condition, is there any hazardous product being used, what causes the equipment to fail“.

Work Environment – sudden changes to environment or the situation which may be abnormal during the time of incidents. Questions such as “what is the condition of the weather, is it too hot or too cold, is there any sign of fumes or smell or noise“.
