Following a loss or a damage incident, questions arise as to:

  • What happened?
  • Why did it happen?
  • When did it happen?
  • Who are the parties involved?

Thorough and objective origin and cause analyses are often the key to moving from questions about an incident toward the realm of resolution. For ED&T, Origin & Cause analysis applies to the technical reconstruction of many different types of incidents:

  • Fire
  • Explosion
  • Materials-related issues
  • Mechanical, electrical or chemical system malfunctions
  • Leaks involving liquids and gases
  • Building envelope concerns
  • And more (limited, it seems, only by imagination)
