Response to Workplace Fatality
Having a fatality in the workplace is the worst possible situation imaginable. Not only do you have to worry about criminal proceedings, but a family is without a parent. A proper incident investigation is very important in moving forward with the proceeding. If a fatality occurred one month prior to the investigation, then I’m assuming they did a workplace investigation directly after the incident too. If the items were corrected initially, but then left to return to how they were during the fatality, it could prove to be a dangerous situation for your company. Usually OSHA will follow up after a death with another investigation. This is to make sure they you are following you are continuing with the abatement procedures and haven’t allowed the same hazards to cause an issue for your employees.
