Do I really need all of these forms to perform an accident investigation?

No.  The forms provided are simply tools for you to use, if applicable, or to provide a guide through the process.  For example, if an employee slips and falls, the Slip and Trip Worksheet may be completed, along with the Notification Record, Incident Statement, the 5 Why form, and the Corrective and Preventative Action form.  Other forms, such as the Lifting Strain Worksheet, Carrying Worksheet, Parts Worksheet, etc. are not necessary.

You should get used to the basic forms for conducting an investigation and find the method that works best for you and use it, along with any specific type of injury worksheets that might be applicable for a given accident.
