Clarity for Industrial Incident InvestigationsWhen a structure collapses or a piece of equipment explodes, the line between human error and mechanical failure can sometimes be difficult to ascertain. FARO reality capture solutions can assist the investigator with failure analysis. Safety professionals in both the public and private sectors use FARO Focus Laser Scanners and other failure investigation tools to capture the forensic details of a scene — debris dispersion and fragmentation patterns — as part of their investigation. Data captured accurately, safely and quickly at the scene becomes powerful documentation to compare against pre-incident planning documents, verify investigation details, build presentations and share as evidence.
