Fire and Explosion Safety
We have extensive experience of helping organisations across a
wide range of high-hazard industries managing fire, explosion
and process safety risks. Apart from the human cost,
a major incident can lead to great expense including loss of
production, legal costs and increased insurance premiums, as well
as the damage to your business reputation.
We offer safety consultancy services in fire and explosion,
process safety and pressure systems (including pressure relief). We
combine theory and modelling with results obtained using the
large-scale experimental facilities on our 550-acre
