With colder temperatures upon us, slippery conditions will increase slip and falls claims. But icy surfaces are not the only cause of slip, trip and fall incidents. To give you some insight into handling slip and fall claims this winter, we sat down with Edmonton-based biomechanical engineer, Rebecca Moss, to explore the topic.
Glass is everywhere around us and forensic investigators are frequently assigned to work on projects involving damage to glass or injuries caused by broken glass. Basic composition, brief descriptions of the different types of glass available on the market, probable failures and the role of the forensic investigator: this article provides a full overview concerning glass.
Let’s go back to basics: what do forensic engineers really do? The job is split into two parts. First, these specialized engineers analyze structural, mechanical, and other engineering failures: What was the problem? Why did it happen? Then, they develop methods to resolve them: what is the best course of action for repair or is there any avenue for recovery?
Lithium-ion batteries are a common part of our daily lives. Although rigorous processes must be followed during their manufacture, and failure rates are very low, the highly combustible materials they contain have the potential to cause catastrophic losses.
Whenever someone first meets one of our engineers, they are inevitably asked, “what’s the craziest thing you’ve ever seen?” and, while we obviously won’t share identifying details, every engineer has a story! In part four of our series, we chatted with three of our mechanical engineers.
Want to know more about the humans behind the expertise? To mark International Women in Engineering Day on June 23, our female experts are taking centre stage this week! At CEP Forensic, we want to celebrate the contribution of our teams in all their diversity! Our female engineers and investigators are already well known by their colleagues and clients for their professionalism and thoroughness.
