Our engineers, scientists, and consultants are a team of true authorities in their fields, with an impressive knowledge base of industrial experience, research and development, and incident investigations. Drawing on decades of real-world experience in scene documentation, evidence collection, data gathering, and incident reconstruction, our experts employ an extensive toolkit of engineering calculations, numerical modeling methods, forensic laboratory examinations, and experimental testing procedures to provide the industry-leading, defensible analyses necessary for informed decision-making.
What we offer
We approach each incident investigation with a specialized perspective. Our team includes certified safety professionals (CSP), professional engineers (P.E.), Ph.D.-level engineers and scientists, and Certified Fire and Explosion Investigators (CFEI). This blend of expertise uniquely positions us to perform advanced forensic analysis on crucial evidence. With proficiency in blast effects, structural analysis, materials engineering, chemical engineering, process safety, and more, combined with our cutting-edge computer modeling and testing capabilities, our incident investigation experts adeptly analyze potential incident hypotheses and determine the causes of incidents.
BakerRisk staff members are active in technical societies and recognized national consensus standards organizations, such as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the American Petroleum Institute (API). We’ve also written the 3rd Edition of the Guidelines for Investigating Process Safety Incidents.
BakerRisk partners with companies that offer services that complement our incident investigation techniques, including FIRST ONSITE: a leading restoration and property reconstruction company serving North America and beyond. We have worked with them, know how they operate, and trust them to provide outstanding quality and service.
CATree© is a state-of-the-art Root Cause Analysis (RCA) tool that requires less training and is more comprehensive than other similar techniques. This user-friendly tool provides a systematic, consistent, repeatable process designed to help users identify potential root causes. What makes CATree© unique is its ability to cover not only the regulated elements of process safety and occupational safety health and environment (SHE) but also the additional elements in risk-based process safety (RBPS), including:
Our proprietary CATree© provides a reliable method for understanding the underlying root causes behind incidents, enabling the implementation of corrective actions that directly address these core issues.
