To manage loss within the work environment, you must first understand what causes accidents / incidents related to work activities in the work place. Losses can be truly controlled only when their potential causes are addressed. An incident may be defined as an event that could or does result in unintended harm or damage. Loss is usually the result of contact with a substance or a source of energy. This course will illustrate a practical model of accident / incident cause factors; substandard acts & conditions, personal / job systems factors and compliance with those systems. These causation factors can be applied to the control of accident / incident potentials.
Safety Coordination Services Cause and Effects of Loss training, emphasizes that every loss exposure is the result of multiple cause factors and the training defines the general methods for controlling loss of incidents and potential occurrences. Four subsystems; People, Equipment, Materials and Environment are major sources of loss and four sources of control will be brought to light through our training in Cause and Effects of Loss.
