On-site analysis accompanied by testing performed by professional engineers who are certified fire and explosion investigators (CFEIs) will determine the origin and cause of catastrophic events.

Professional engineers conduct Testlabs International’s investigations and are backed by full laboratory support, NFPA 921 training, and certification.

They oversee investigations for a wide range of causes, including:

  • Causes of insurance loss
  • To prove or refute a claim of arson
  • To verify insurance coverage
  • Determine if defective equipment was the cause
  • Determine depreciation of fire- or explosion-damaged equipment

Testlabs International is a member of the National Association of Fire Investigators (NAFI), and the Canadian Association of Fire Investigators (CAFI).

Dr. Tennesey P. Eng., an expert in failure analysis, has been conducting fire and explosion investigations since 1990.
