We all know that accidents happen. When it comes to load handling, accidents cost time, money, and worse. During ITI's Accident Investigation course, we take students through a series of workshops over the course of three days, focusing on instances related to material handling, crane operations, rigging activities, and forklift operations. Our problem-solving workshops are designed to help solidify participants' knowledge of equipment set-up, proper application, capacity information, inspection hazard recognition, and operational safety.
Accident Investigation students are exposed to three full-sized accident sites at the Woodland, Washington Training Center. Each site is accompanied by a resource packet that includes:
- Eye Witness Accounts
- Report from Local Emergency Personnel
- Machine and Equipment Data
Participants will work in teams to evaluate each accident site along with the additional resources provided to formulate a root cause summary based on their findings. Under guidance from ITI Instructors, teams will also be tasked with citing regulatory violations, and finally, propose a recommended corrective action plan.
