Accident & Incident Investigation

Carrying out an investigation is the first step in understanding what has gone wrong in a particular circumstance with the ultimate aim of recognising where the existing control measures have failed and to prevent the accident or incident ever happening again.

The investigation should identify why the existing risk control measures failed, as well as what, when, where and why more improvements or additional measures are needed.

In addition to running a module on accident and incident investigation on my client representative courses, being trained as a Root Cause Specialist, my services have been regularly engaged as part of an investigation team attending onshore and offshore worksites globally. The most recent investigation was a fire-damaged diving vessel in the Middle East.
