Determining the root cause and the chain of causality that led to an injury or property damage is both an interesting engineering challenge and the key to reducing the risk of further occurrences. Safety Guru, LLC's principal has been involved in numerous such investigations, sometimes as the initial investigator, sometimes as a backup investigator when the first-line personnel have been unable to identify the cause. As an external resource, Safety Guru, LLC is free of the prejudices (deliberate, subconscious, or otherwise) that often influence the judgment of internal personnel. This "outsider's perspective" enables considering an investigation without having either a preference as to the cause or a pre-defined set of "usual suspects".
Although Safety Guru, LLC does not operate laboratory facilities for analysis of failed equipment, it has substantial experience in obtaining, and interpreting and applying the results from, such work.
