Post Collision Analysis
Examination of the incident, your skills as a driver and through coaching create a plan to reduce your overall risk on the road.
Driving at Work in Northern Ireland
What if you or your employee was involved in a work related collision?
- Do you have the relevant system and procedures in place to carry out a ‘Post Collision’ interview and investigation?
- Do you have all the relevant paperwork?
- Does your staff have the relevant expertise to carry out this investigation?
The ability to look into a collision is a specialist skill and we at ADE Training and Consultancy have the professional expertise to get straight to the important details of what happened and why.
The longer the interview is left the less likely the drivers are to remember relevant facts from the incident. Therefore our highly trained coaches will act professionally and conduct the interview promptly after the incident, to glean an accurate picture of what happened.
From this ADE Training and Consultancy will help the drivers and the company, to understand what they can do differently in the future and benefit from the learning opportunity presented from any collision.
HSENI’s “Driving at Work – Northern Ireland An Employer’s Guide” states you need to make sure it is carried out by someone who:
- is competent to do so (has the right skills, knowledge and experience);
- involves your workers in the process;
- understands when specialist help may be needed.
Risk assessment is about identifying and taking sensible measures to control the risks in your workplace, not about creating huge amounts of paperwork. The aim is to make the risk of someone being injured or killed as low as possible by following five key steps.
See HSENI’s Five Steps to Risk Assessment, which is available via the following link: Five Steps to Risk Assessment.
What are the potential consequences?
Work related road safety should be a priority for organisations for legal, societal, reputational, financial and efficiency reasons. If one of your employees is killed, for example while driving for work, and there is evidence that serious management failures resulted in a ‘gross breach of a relevant duty of care’, your company or organisation could be at risk of being prosecuted under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007.
