Our investigator is a senior experienced human resources practitioner with several years’ experience in this field. He is also a qualified Incident Causal Analysis Methods System (ICAMS) investigator. ICAMS is an internationally recognised method for the investigation of ’causes’ of safety events and is a ‘no blame’ process.
We offer investigations services into the following:
- Employment Relationship issues. These investigations look at the breakdown of relationships to determine the cause. They are a ‘no fault’ investigation looking to identify cause and remedy not blame.
- Disciplinary investigations. Disciplinary investigations are undertaken to support the conduct of a disciplinary process. These types of investigations delve into a situation to determine the facts of an incident for presentation and consideration by the decision maker in a disciplinary process. These types of investigation may also be undertaken to determine if a disciplinary case exits. By default, they are not a causal investigation as they consider the actions and or activities of a nominated individual or individuals.
- Safety Event Investigations. A safety event investigation considers the causes of a safety incident, accident or near miss. They are a causal ‘no blame’ investigation as they are looking at what caused the event not who was at fault. Safety investigations form part of the risk management and/or assurance components of a safety management system. Safety investigations are important for ‘Officers due diligence’ and continual improvement of a safety management system. Investigations into near misses present a company with the opportunity to prevent an injury causing event.
