Last week we talked about being ready for the unexpected to happen, including preparing an accident investigation grab-and-go kit. Let’s flesh that out a little more.

I mentioned that an accident investigation kit can be as simple as forms (such as a form to record initial observations of the witnesses) and a disposable camera. Here are some other ideas that are useful across industries:


Tape measure


Evidence tags and bags


Work and latex gloves


Barricade tape

Camera & tripod

Graph Paper

Witness Statement Forms

Paper, clipboard, pen

Copy of  Accident Investigation Policy

What other ideas do you have? Comment below.
