Our investigator is a senior human resources practitioner with several years’ experience. He is also a qualified Incident Causal Analysis Methods System (ICAMS) investigator and a licenced Private Investigator. ICAMS is an internationally recognised method for the investigation of events and is a root cause investigation process.

We offer investigations services into the following:

Employment Relationship issues. These investigations look at the breakdown of relationships to determine the cause. They are a ‘no fault’ investigation looking to identify cause and remedy not blame.

Disciplinary investigations. Disciplinary investigations are undertaken to support the conduct of a disciplinary process. These types of investigations delve into a situation to determine the facts of an incident for presentation and consideration by the decision maker in a disciplinary process. These types of investigation may also be undertaken to determine if a disciplinary case exits. By default, they are not a causal investigation as they consider the actions and or activities of a nominated individual or individuals.

Safety Event Investigations. A safety event investigation considers the causes of a safety incident, accident or near miss. They are a causal ‘no blame’ investigation as they are looking at what caused the event not who was at fault. Safety investigations form part of the risk management and/or assurance components of a safety management system. Safety investigations are important for ‘Officers due diligence’ and continual improvement of a safety management system. Investigations into near misses present a company with the opportunity to prevent an injury causing event.

Quality Investigations. A non-conformance may not be readily identifiable and may be caused by a failure if process and procedure or human error.  A quality investigation is a root cause investigation aimed at identifying the cause of a non-conformance and the remedies.  A quality management approach requires the cause of non-conformance be identified and rectified.

Cost for this service:

$100 + GST per hour.

I engaged Jim to provide me with my HR when I purchased my business. Sometimes I could just hug him! He keeps things simple for me and gives me confidence that I am doing the right things. I understand the importance to receive HR advice that is professional and current with the latest NZ employment rules, so it is nice having him in my back pocket when I need his help. He is so easy to deal with, nothing is ever a problem and his advice is honest, even if I don’t want to hear it. I am getting from him exactly what I need. He is definitely worth the investment.
