Industrial Accident Investigation case
In May 2021 AVF worked on a fatal accident enquiry at an industrial site in Europe where health and safety breaches were in question. The case hinged on the results of visibility tests from head mount cameras on a forklift truck and reconstructions to ascertain the speed a forklift truck was being driven at the time of the fatal accident.
After a series of reconstructions involving area distance measurements and visibility tests accurate speed was calculated and a report created. These were undertaken using a combination of simultaneous drone footage, head cameras, tripod cameras and CCTV.
