  inspection of the accident site and area to collect evidence
  inspection of the involved equipment, products, etc. to collect evidence

  coordinating and/or interfacing with others while they are preparing specialized exhibits such as
     video animations and videos of demonstrations

  preparing written reports and affidavits presenting the results of the work
  doing calculations, graphical analyses and computer analyses, and preparing drawings,
     and other analytical aids 
  photography and/or video of the accident site, involved equipment, testing, etc.
  testimony in deposition, trial and arbitration
- such as roadways, off-road, outdoor facilities, indoor facilities, buildings, homes, commercial establishments, industrial facilities, etc.
- such inspection could include observing operation of the involved equipment when damage has not occurred to the equipment, such as industrial and commercial equipment, household items, vehicles, etc.
- such inspection could include inspection of damaged equipment, particularly if the damage is related to the incident, such as crashed vehicles, the remains of an explosion, etc.
