Senior members of the Matrix team have worked closely with Expro personnel to integrate intelligent investigation with the company’s existing root cause analysis (RCA) tool, aiming to streamline and improve the organisation’s overall incident reporting, recording and investigation process.

Matrix has been working with Expro for a period of six months to develop and embed the Expro’s new intelligent investigation process.

Commenting on the partnership, Ian Robb, service quality director at Expro said, “Our objective was to further enhance the initial investigation and evidence gathering part of our existing process. Matrix worked with us to develop a bespoke and interactive training module that complemented our existing tool.”

Craig Smith, training manager of Matrix, noted, “A robust approach to incident investigation management is of vital importance, as it allows organisations to learn valuable lessons from near misses and seemingly minor incidents, thus preventing major incidents and improving overall health and safety performance.”

“The proactive development of the intelligent investigation process demonstrates Expro’s commitment to creating a responsible and positive health and safety culture for its staff members, contractors and clients,” Smith explained.

Matrix provides training and support services to help organisations manage major forms of operational risk. Founded in 2009, the company conducts independent investigations worldwide and works with organisations across a variety of sectors to provide incident investigation training courses and management services.

Its incident investigation toolkit courses are IOSH-approved and have attracted attention from an international audience. The principles and methodologies from these courses were used as a foundation for Expro’s new Intelligent Investigation process.
