Accidents
National Summary
An "accident" is any unplanned event that results in personal injury or property damage. Accidents are often preceded by related incidents and near misses, and are often both predictable and preventable. Causes of accidents can be identified through change analysis, job safety analysis, accident investigations, and near-miss reports. Workplace safety programs are designed to prevent accidents by improving the work environment and employee work practices. The proper use of signs or symbols to indicate and define specific hazards are essential tools for helping employees spot hazards and avoid accidents. Safety meetings also provide an excellent way to communicate safe practices to employees and prevent accidents. Most employers must keep accident records. Training employees to adopt safe practices will also help prevent accidents.
