Mathematical Modelling and Statistics

We use our expertise to help our customers decide where they should focus their resources to have the greatest impact in reducing health and safety risks.

We have a broad range of specialist modelling and statistical expertise, including Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and epidemiology, that we have applied across industries as diverse as petrochemicals, nuclear, aerospace, health and local authorites. Our customers are able to make evidence-based decisions, enabling them to plan and carry out their operations safely.

 

How can we help?

  • Advising on safely extending the life of ageing assets
  • Understand the causes of a workplace accident or incident, and prevent it happening again
  • Spot patterns in accidents, ill-health or component failures
  • Model a scenario, to predict what could happen in the event of an emergency or failure - for example an explosion or release of flammable gas
  • Provide information for high-hazard installation safety cases

 

Example: Reducing workplace ill-health

Sickness absence and workplace ill-health costs UK industry millions of pounds each year. We can look at data and investigate trends to identify the causes of ill-health in the workplace, then make projections on how it may affect you in the future.. We can then advise you on how to tackle these issues effectively, both now and going forward.

Specific issues can also be investigated, such as assessing worker exposure by modelling the dispersion of aerosols, microorganisms or gases around the human body.
