Achieving the risk - cost balance

Unmanaged risk proves costly: to human life and the liveability of communities, to the operating time of an onshore oil, gas or chemical facility and to the business bottom line.

Viewing risk as a potential cost highlights the critical need for safe operations of facilities and processes and provides a strong business case for Safety Case development beyond compliance requirements. Managing hazards associated with the process industry can also help prevent incidents resulting from the release of chemicals and other sources into the environment, which can have severe impacts on personnel and the public.

Our independent, impartial, consultants and network of experts worldwide understand the key drivers for risk and safety related studies:

With extensive knowledge of Process Safety and Management (PSM), we are able to provide a series of risk management support services including the Utilities and Process Plant sectors. Using a number of risk and modelling tools and techniques, we assist in identifying and quantifying hazards in design, construction and commissioning, providing design and operating solutions to reduce or minimize the potential risk to personnel and assets. We are able to provide a clear visualization of the hazards, identify critical barriers and offer recommendations for risk reduction to as lows as reasonably practicable.

Some of our services include:
