“We provide independent, data-driven insight on an individual’s decision-making and behavior surrounding the use of product. This knowledge can be used to help the client better understand the user’s goal(s) while interacting with the product. This is important because sometimes even subtle changes in a user’s goal-directed behavior can lead to errors and violations, resulting in incidents.”

Offering extensive experience in safety, forensic sciences, and failure analysis, Rimkus has a diverse group of qualified engineers, metallurgists and materials scientists, biomechanists, human factors experts, and safety professionals to conduct accident investigations involving products, equipment, and materials.

Our experts use specialized investigative techniques to analyze the full spectrum of the product cycle. We examine the entire life cycle, from inception to end use, including design, manufacturing, materials installation, training, operation, and maintenance.
