Injury/Illness Analysis

It is a requirement at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) that all injuries and illnesses must be investigated, with worker participation, by qualified BNL investigative personnel. Investigations of incidents that involve occupational injury and/or occupational illness are conducted using a graded approach that takes into account the severity and consequences of the incident, as well as the potential value in lessons learned. Prompt and complete investigation of incidents and accidents are keys to identifying the causes and establishing effective corrective actions to prevent recurrence.

This subject area applies to all BNL employees, contractors, guests, and students and describes the notification and investigation process for occupational injuries or illnesses that occur while performing work in accordance with their jobs at BNL(on- or off-site), including those that occur while the employee is on business travel.
