Workplace Safety

Keeping employees safe using animation

Knott Laboratory investigates many cases regarding safety in the workplace each year. We have worked on cases involving a variety of equipment, such as forklifts, concrete pumpers, wood chippers, table saws and more.

Animation is becoming increasingly more prevalent in educating workers about workplace hazards in the hopes of preventing future accidents. The Knott Lab Forensic Animation Department has worked successfully with entities, such as Washington State Dept. of Labor & Industries and WorkSafe BC, to create animations that demonstrate the proper and improper way to operate equipment.

Experts in the Field

Our forensic engineers are experts in accident reconstruction, failure analysis and cause & origin. Our forensic engineers work directly with our in-house animation department to create state-of-the-art forensic animations for use in court, arbitration, mediation or settlement negotiations.
