Investigation

We can draw upon experience of carrying out independent investigations into incidents to identify the immediate and underlying causes.  This allows employers to ensure that sensible and appropriate control measures are put into place to comply with health and safety law in the short, medium and long terms. 

We have investigated many work related injuries, diseases and cases of ill health and have been able to ensure that employers take effective remedial action to prevent re-occurrence.

We are also able to advise on how to deal with HSE and Local Authorities and give advice and support following serious incidents.  This can include at all stages of incident investigation from the day of the incident right through to the court hearing.

We understand that dealing with the Enforcing Authorities (HSE, Police and Local Authorities) can be a traumatic experience.  We can help you to deal with the aftermath of serious incidents and undertake independent investigations to make sure you to put things right as soon as possible and are prepared for the outcome of the investigation.  Contact us for more information.

We have experience of investigating major and fatal accidents using analytical investigation models to assist you to identify and correct the underlying causes of accidents.  For more information on how to prevent accidents in the workplace see the HSE publication HSG 238: Out of Control – Why control systems go wrong and how to prevent failure.
