I investigate incidents that occur in the process industries, such as Chemical Plants, Refineries, Oil and Gas Production, Pulp and Paper Mills and similar facilities, to identify the root causes of the incident. I evaluate applicable Federal regulations and Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices (RAGAGEP) to determine the degree of compliance with their requirements.
I work with the attorneys that represent the facility owner, contractors, insurance companies and injured parties to help them understand the root causes of the incident, what steps were taken to prevent such an incident from occurring and what steps should have been taken to prevent the incident. I provide detailed reports of my findings and provide deposition and trial testimony. My findings are based on my thirty years of diverse experience working in the process industries in Research and Development, Engineering, Safety, Operations, Maintenance, and Management.
