A key IMCA activity is facilitating the sharing of information on potential hazards at the worksite and lessons learnt from follow-up investigations, thereby helping the industry to avoid repeat occurrences.

Analysis of trends helps focus our work programme on critical areas to deliver more assistance to the industry. In addition, learning from mistakes is a key part of business improvement and the pursuit of efficiency. Avoiding repeating an incident or accident saves lives, time and money – we all know it makes sense. Read more in our HSSE pages.
