PPE FOR CAUSE AND ORIGIN EXPERTS
Cause and Origin experts play a crucial role in investigating the origin and cause of incidents, such as fires, which lead to insurance claims. They are typically hired by insurance companies, law firms, independent adjusters, contractors, and homeowners. Cause and Origin experts often face dangerous environments, such as fire scenes, accident sites, or crime scenes, where they are exposed to various hazards. To ensure their safety, HazChem provides Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for cause and origin experts, protecting them from risks like asbestos, hazardous chemicals, extreme temperatures, and more.
The process of determining the origin and cause of an incident is challenging. Cause and Origin experts begin by asking questions like “Where did this incident originate?” and “What was the cause?” They must effectively communicate with fire department officials, adjusters, or other individuals present at the scene where the incident occurred. Balancing the information received, whether truthful or not, with the evidence gathered at the site is a crucial aspect of their work.
Hazards at Cause and Origin Sites
The work conducted by Cause and Origin experts on-site is not without its dangers. Some of the risks they face include:
- Asbestos Exposure: While investigating the origin of the issue, experts must be protected from asbestos exposure.
- Extreme Temperatures: Experts need protection from extreme temperatures, whether extremely cold or hot, to ensure their well-being during the investigation.
- Handling Hazardous Waste: The team of experts must be equipped with proper PPE to handle hazardous waste or even to be in proximity to it.
- Essential Tools and Equipment: Cause and Origin experts require various tools and equipment to conduct an effective investigation.
