  • Incident and Accident Investigation

    Marex can provide specialist marine accident investigators and expert witnesses on a variety of different subjects and areas of expertise. Marex can provide team leaders or expert support to assist on investigations and the determination of root causes. A number of Marex consultants are trained in Incident Analysis, using Incident XP, a variation on the BowTie principal. Examples:

    • The provision of a Marex Principal Consultant, to perform the role of expert witness in a London court in the matter of arbitration between a drilling contractor and a shipyard on compliance expectations.

    • A Marex Principal Consultant spent several weeks on the disaster investigation team for a drill rig support vessel, which capsized, subsequently reviewing the findings.
