Hazard Inspections

Hazard Inspections are a means of identifying those things or situations with the potential to cause harm or loss. A barrier in conducting internal hazard inspections are ‘familiar eyes’ or complacency. It is important that ‘fresh eyes’ or non-familiar persons are used in the identification of hazards.

We specialise in conducting hazard inspections within the workplace and for plant and equipment. After conducting a hazard inspections Triple A provides its clients with detailed findings, i.e. Hazard Reports. These reports are complemented by elements of risk management to ensure we also provide information on reducing the level of risk.

Incident Investigations

Investigations into incidents is vital in identifying contributing factors and preventing incident recurrence. It is prudent to ensure investigations are conducted on high potential incidents and other signification or serious accidents.

Effective incident investigation starts with what happened (i.e. a time line) and then why did that happen (i.e. the 5 why’s). In facilitating incident investigations, Triple A typically utilise a hybrid of techniques and methods used within various industries, including ICAM and TapRoot. This allows us to coach investigation teams and to reach our investigation aim of identifying and effectively controlling root causes.
