||This guidance on how to investigate accidents and incidents, including near misses, was prepared in consultation with industry, unions and health and safety professional bodies. It is intended as a first step in introducing organizations to the benefits of carrying out investigations and the methods by which accidents should be recorded, investigated and the findings acted upon. The guidance is aimed primarily at SMEs where it is often difficult to build up an expertise in investigating, although larger organizations may also find it helpful. The four steps featured in the guidance are: the gathering of information; the analysing of information; identifying risk control measures; the action plan and its implementation.
