ToxStrategies professionals have both the expertise and practical experience necessary to solve challenging engineering problems in a variety of settings.  Investigating an engineering failure requires the application of fundamental engineering principles to uncover the root cause. Assessing the potential risk of a future incident requires a thorough assessment of possible failure mechanisms.

Engineering analysis provides valuable insights and solutions to a wide array of problems in industrial, commercial, and residential settings.  The analysis may be related to a personal injury, a transactional dispute, manufacturing improvements, new facilities, or consumer-product design.  Understanding how scientific reality intersects with practical necessity is key to solving real-world problems.  Selected examples of relevant staff experience include the following:
