Workplace Investigations

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.

Jim Pope from Hauraki Health and Safety has done what he said he would do. I can now focus on building my business knowing that Jim has my back. He manages my safety for me, is dealing with my pre-qualification (which I found confusing) and he has given me an app to use which means no paper, no worries and no having to work after hours on safety stuff. It really is nice knowing that I don’t have to do this because Jim is.”
