Safety, Health & Environmental Consultants - Accident Investigation Service

Podojil & Associates, Incorporated subject matter experts investigate accidents, injuries and near misses in the workplace. The situations we investigate internally for organizations are intended to identify why the incident occurred and the steps to take to prevent similar situations occurring in the future.

The reports we prepare for the legal practitioner can assist in establishing negligence or defending a negligence action.

Investigative Support

In investigating incidents internally for organizations and outside counsel, we identify the factors that contributed to the incident and detail control measures needed to prevent a recurrence.

Our analysis identifies the range of factors that contributed to the incident; the types of factors we examine are:

Person factors - training, experience, activities, supervision, etc.

Equipment factors - suitability, condition, design, maintenance, etc.

Environmental factors - weather, work conditions, temperature, lighting, etc.

Procedural factors - instructions, work practices, systems of work, etc.

We also train management, safety, health & environmental professionals, safety, committees and others within the organization on how to investigate accidents and incidents objectively to reduce the possibility of similar incidents reoccurring.

Expert Witness Reports

We investigate a range of injuries for both Defendant and Plaintiff matters in regard to personal injury. The reports we prepare have been used in establishing liability or helping bring the matters to settlement.
