Workplace Investigations

A Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU) must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that workers are safe from injury and risks while at work and this requires safe systems of work to be in place.

When an incident does occur in the workplace, an investigation should be undertaken at an appropropriate point (after the injured person has received first aid or medical treatment) to understand why the incident occurred.

One of investigation outcomes is to determine if there should be any changes made to how equipment is used or the processes and policies that people follow to avoid a future incident occurring. These activities also support the achievement of a safe workplace.

Notifications of workplace incidents

PCBU’s must notify Pretoriasafety of serious injuries and illnesses as well as dangerous incidents.

Our experienced Consultants can provide you with guidance on how to conduct a workplace investigation which can include interviews with personnel to determine:


Details of the events leading up to the incident


The incident itself


What happened after the incident


Interviews of key personnel

We can prepare a detailed report of the incident and also assess the factors that may have led to the incident, providing the Business with a clear understanding of future steps.
