When an accident occurs in a workplace, it’s vital that an employer protects themselves by retaining an investigative agency that is a third party to conduct a thorough workplace investigation. An inaccurate or incomplete investigation can greatly increase your potential liability as an employer. When an accident does occur in the workplace, it is vital to have this investigation started immediately, generally within 24-48 hours after the time of accident.
The Investigative agency that your company selects should not only understand OSHA compliance issues but also knows how to properly conduct a workplace investigation including taking in depth interview with witnesses, taking photographs and securing evidence. Shelton Investigations has investigators with many years of experience in conducting various types of workplace accident investigations and interviews.
According to the United States Chamber of Commerce, employee theft costs businesses approximately $40 billion annually and increases by 15% every year.
