Incident response | EEF

Incident response

When a health and safety incident occurs, our team can support your HSCE team to investigate, liaise with regulators and put the necessary measures in place to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

What we can do

We offer expertise when an accident or incident occurs; even providing same-day support if needed. We’re able to supplement your internal resources by providing expert support, advice, and guidance in the period following an incident.

Our experts can

  • Provide a full accident investigation
  • Liaise with regulators
  • Help you identify the root causes of the incident, including cause and effect analysis, and fault and event analysis, and working with you to ensure the same incident doesn’t happen again
  • Determine the optimal resource allocation, priorities, objectives and project management


Key benefits

  • Receive a complete plan that’s SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time bound)
  • Ensuring compliance with legislation and minimising the opportunities for fines or punitive measures from relevant agencies
  • A third-party analysis of causes, barriers and improvements to ensure progress is made quickly
  • Ensure internal HSCE managers can focus on big-picture challenges while progress is made by the consultant to handle the incident and its fall out
