Process Safety


Safety has to be a priority in any industrial processing environment. HSL's large-scale process safety testing facilities enable our clients to recreate, analyse and assess hazards relating to chemical reactions, electrostatic discharges, cryogenic liquid spills and associated risks.

Our testing capabilities are supported by the world-class regulatory expertise and experience of our process safety practitioners who can help you to resolve complex process safety and risk management issues.


For expert assistance with your process safety testing questions and requirements, please contact:
