Firstly the team collects evidence and decides whether or not to conduct an Initial Examination (IE). During IE, which is the first stage of the investigation, the team evaluates the causes and circumstances of an accident to see if they meet the criteria required to warrant further investigation. All parties involved will be notified for the initial results.
Our team’s methodology originates by addressing following:
- What and how happened?
- Why did it happen?
- Who were involved?
- How can we prevent similar scenarios?
- Risk analysis
- Root cause analysis
All available equipment and means will be used, provided the agreement of the involved parties. (ship black boxes, divers, underwater equipment etc.)
