Accident Investigation

There is no doubt, having a staff member suffer a serious harm accident is one of the most traumatic events that any business can face.

Depending on the severity of the event, the result will frequently include universal grief from both management and employees, shock, self-recrimination, loss of time, loss of production, damage to plant and/or equipment, and loss of profits.

We start with a complete survey of your business

Sands Management’s first task within your business will be to perform a comprehensive safety audit with an eye to identifying problem areas. We will present you with a written report highlighting all aspects of your work environment that we believe are either potentially dangerous or may incur the attention of a visiting Worksafe NZ inspector. We will help you initiate solutions to these issues.

We are available to you 24/7

Should an employee be seriously injured in your workplace, make sure that Sands Management are the next person you call after emergency aid has been summoned . We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will attend all accident scenes immediately to give advice and direction on what your next steps should be. Our experience and expertise in such situations is unparalleled.

We will freeze the site

We will freeze the site (as is required by law), contact Worksafe NZ, and be there to greet them when they arrive. We will begin a comprehensive investigation of the accident and will create a full pictorial report that will meet the requirements of Worksafe NZ.
