Do you know how to effectively gather and interpret incident information?

KITCHENER, Ont. — Gathering and correctly interpreting information and evidence are foundational to an effective safety management system. 

The Fleet Safety Council 2013 Annual Conference, scheduled for Oct. 24-26 in Kitchener, Ont., will include a session on Incident Analysis designed to teach attendees how to effectively gather and analyze critical information.

Attendees will walk through a mock incident. They will experience how the true scope of the incident is uncovered as the investigation progresses. This session will also guide them through the process of gathering information and making observations to analyze the root cause(s), as well as how to make appropriate recommendations for safety management improvement.

The session will be led by Carmine Benedetti, health and safety consultant. Benedetti joined IHSA (legacy Transportation Health & Safety Association of Ontario – THSAO) in 1994 and was employed in various capacities (H&S Consultant, Operations Mgr., Director of Operations).

Benedetti has received accreditations through the Material Handling & Management Society; PCMH (Professional Certified in Material Handling) and P.MM (Professional in Materials Management). He is the Past-President of the Toronto Chapter of the Material Handling & Management Society and currently serves on the Executive Board.

He has also been an active participant in the development of the CSA B335 standard on Lift Truck Operator Training which was published in 1994, as well as the Ontario MOL Guideline for ‘Safe Operation and Maintenance of Powered Lift Trucks’.

The session is one of several planned for the event. To find out more and to register, go to
