Slip, Trip and Fall

Bodily injury from falls is an everyday risk in a marine workplace or environment. Among the leading causes of those incidents? Slips and trips.

Our engineers and consultants are detailed investigators of slip, trip and fall incidents in workplace environments. Their investigative experience and extensive knowledge of code compliance and standards helps them determine the facts, conditions and events that led to a same-level or elevated-level fall. Many members of our investigation team are effective, experienced and trusted resources in both fall prevention and safety design.

Our technical library resources include those from the United States Coast Guard (USCG), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Federal Regulations, local and state building codes as well as marine industry stanadards from American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC), American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM), American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Our engineers, who are frequently called as expert witnesses, are known for their ability to accurately and concisely explain the unique factors of an injury or loss to an insurance adjuster, attorney or jury in an easy-to-understand manner.
