Chapter 28: Incident Investigation

An incident is any event that requires investigation, either because of the harm it has caused people, the environment, or property, or of the potential that it could have caused such harm. When an incident occurs at SLAC, it must be dealt with in a timely and effective manner, with any injured persons promptly and effectively assisted; principles of scene management, incident investigation, and causal analysis scrupulously followed; and all recording and reporting requirements met.

This chapter describes how incident investigations are handled at SLAC, from initial response through recording and reporting requirements.
