The beginning of the TR2 software
The Tripod Beta incident analysis software was created in 2009 by Chris Pietersen who was then director of Safety Solutions Consultants (SSC). Thanks to the strategic collaboration with Safety Solutions Consultants, Kuiper & Burger was able to offer the software and started realizing the ambition to become the expertise center in the field of Tripod incident analysis. In 2019 Chris Pietersen asked Kuiper & Burger to continue with the software
Who are we?
Kuiper & Burger Advies- en Ingenieursbureau was founded in 1994 by two college friends. After five years of organic growth, the two friends started two new companies under the same trade name: Kuiper & Burger Advies- en Ingenieursbureau. Marco van de Pavoordt joined Kuiper & Burger as a consultant in 2001. After a number of years he became a senior advisor and in 2006 he became director and co-owner. Åsa Norrthon joined the company in 2011, after a few years she became a senior advisor and in 2015 she became director alongside Marco van de Pavoordt. She also became co-owner at the end of 2016. With their team of advisors they made the Tripod software into what it is today.
