Workplace Inspections and Incident Investigations

It is required under the Occupational Health and Safety Act that the workplace be inspected on a monthly basis. Where it is not practical to inspect the workplace at least once a month, the inspection of the complete workplace should be at least once a year, inspecting at least a part of the workplace each month.

Even where inspections are not legally required, a well managed inspection program can help to identify problems and assess risks before accidents or injuries occur. An adequate inspection program can:


Identify potential problems:

  • Identify deficiencies in equipment and or machinery
  • Assess and determine the degree of compliance
  • Demonstrate management support for the health and safety program
  • Identify gaps in the occupational health and safety management system
  • Risk management and mitigation

Workplace accidents do happen, its human nature. However, pinpointing the exact root of the problem is the most important part. At canaPHEM, our H&S Specialists can teach you how to prepare yourself for workplace investigations. This is an instructor lead session or workshop that can be done on-site or via an online webinar using Zoom (or another similar application). The workshop/session will last 3 hours. When it comes to an investigation, the most important information is found on the unobstructed scene. It is important for the first person on-site to be adequately trained to analyze the scene to document the findings.


Proper incident investigations can implement and help identify:

  • Corrective actions to prevent future occurrences
  • Errors in your safety management system
  • Identify hazards in your operations
  • Discovering the root cause
  • How to adequately handle records and documentation
  • How to adequately conduct workplace incident investigations
