Claire Miller, B.E.SC., P.Eng. and Dr. Andrew Huntley, B.Sc., Ph.D. are pleased to discuss the role of multidisciplinary investigations in injury claims, with a specific focus on stairway falls. While many are familiar with the individual disciplines of building code, human factors assessments, or biomechanical investigations, the advantages of combining multiple disciplines in identifying technical issues associated with personal injury, especially on stairs, are less commonly discussed. They will bring real-world examples of where a multidisciplinary approach has been helpful in identifying technical issues in incidents involving stairs. The conversation will also consider best practices when multiple disciplines are involved, to ensure you are achieving the maximum benefit from these investigations.
