The AI (Accident Investigation) Course begins with a series of workshops that focus on three disciplines related to load handling; crane operations, rigging activities and forklift operations. Problem-solving workshops help solidify participants' understanding and knowledge concerning equipment set-up, proper application, capacity information, inspection, hazard recognition and operational safety.
Participants will then be exposed to three full-sized accident sites. Each site is accompanied by a document packet complete with eye witness accounts, sheriff's report, machine/equipment data, and other vital information. Teams will evaluate the sites and document packet, then formulate a 'root cause' summary based on the facts and their findings. Additionally, the team will compile a list of possible violations and propose a recommended corrective action plan.
