a report of an interview with a victim of an occupational injury or illness. You are to select an individual who has suffered an occupational injury or illness that has caused them to miss at least one week of work to interview for this project. The individual may not be an immediate family member nor a classmate. Plan to spend one to two hours with this person and explain what you doing there. Information you need to report includes, but is not limited to:
• The type of job the person was performing
• Detailed description of the events leading up to the incident (cause of accident)
• Date of the injury/illness
• Extent of injuries sustained
• Time missed from work
• Type, duration, and success level of rehabilitation
• Did incident result in OSHA visit?
• What changes to the workplace occurred following the incident?
• What changes occurred in the manner in which the individual performs his/her task now?

So are you working on your first Accident Report Forms for an occupational accident?

You left out one very important question for the injured person. "What should you have done differently that would have prevented this accident?" No matter how you ask your questions, be prepared for a very defensive and possibly angry answer.

My spouse is a Safety Engineer and if an accident on his job sends a person to the doctor or hospital, they get a drug test. You will be surprised how many fail the test.

Are you studying OSHT? You might get some great information from The American Society of Safety Engineers.

You basically need to do an intake with this person.

You also basically need to do this assignment yourself. Go do your homework.
