Safety investigations

HSSA brings together a group of highly experienced system safety practitioners with both international and Canadian experience in the investigation and review of critical incidents and other significant events in many safety-critical domains, with an emphasis on healthcare. HSSA advisors have participated in the review of hundreds of events spanning more than three decades and are always happy share that experience with organizations and regions that may have less cumulative experience. We have a particular interest in complex healthcare events and incidents.

Safety Investigations and Reviews include:

  • Independent third party reviews of recent accidents and critical incidents
  • External reviews of safety critical situations
  • Distance mentoring of quality and safety staff
  • Guidance with respect to legislative and accreditation expectations
