AN expert has said that employing scientific models in investigating occurrences is key and useful in making safety recommendations intended to prevent accident, thereby securing investment and resources.

The expert, Programme Director, National Fire Prevention Awareness and Advocacy (NFPAWA) Mrs. Anthonia Beri, advised government and private businesses to exercise strict caution against incessant accident and emergencies that could rip off investment and divert business focus.

Beri who called on government and proprietor’s intervention and investment in capacity building and skill acquisition programmes, said: “In Nigeria, the fundamental principles for determining the causes of fire does not involve science, but  the experience of the investigator and most times this resulted in conclusions that were not tested to determine their validity.

“Fire investigation cannot be left to the discretion of an individual without adequate proof to back up the theory,” she said.

She added that complying with global standards of fact findings in cases of accidents would see companies pay less insurance premium, enjoy credible reputation, stakeholders older buy-in and increased confidence in their business continuity plan.
