We approach every incident with a unique lens, tailoring our investigation strategy to your specific situation and needs.

Why Incident Investigations Matter

In the realm of health and safety, incident investigations are not just reactive measures—they are proactive steps towards creating a safer work environment. They help businesses identify root causes of incidents, spot systemic issues, and develop effective strategies to prevent similar events in the future.

DeRisk NZ’s incident investigations provide several key benefits:

Improved Safety:

By identifying the root cause of an incident, we can help implement corrective measures to prevent similar incidents from happening again.

Risk Mitigation:

Thorough investigations enable businesses to understand potential risks, identify where controls have failed or are absent, helping them take proactive steps to mitigate these risks.


Our investigations ensure your business meets health and safety legal requirements, helping you maintain compliance with WorkSafe standards and other regulatory bodies.

Trust and Confidence:

By conducting impartial and thorough investigations, we can help maintain and build trust with your employees, stakeholders, and regulators.

Learning and Improvement:

Each investigation is an opportunity to learn and improve safety practices, fostering a culture of continuous improvement in your organisation.
