Assessment and Analysis of Risk

 

It is well understood that in many process safety contexts, where operations involve inherent hazards, risks can be reduced but not eliminated.

risk analysis form.jpgOnce you are clear about the major accident hazards that are associated with your business, you need to know how likely they are to occur and whether the resulting risks are both as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP) and tolerable.

This is achieved by assessing and quantifying your specific risks.

Within complex industrial processes and technologies this is a specialist technical discipline.
We can give you the assurance that you're making the most appropriate judgements relating to your high-consequence risks.

 

Helping you to assess and control risk

Whatever your needs in this area, we have experience and expertise that can be applied to your situation.
For example, we can:

  • 'check your work' by providing an expert review of your own calculations
  • validate your assumptions using mathematical modelling or our physical experimental test facilities
  • provide supporting data for use in modelling
  • offer guidance as to which methods of risk assessment and analysis methods to use

 

Why work with us?

We've carried out risk assessments including Qualified Risk Assessment (QRA) across a number of industries involving toxic and flammable substances from chemical process and storage facilities, hazardous goods transportation and nuclear establishments.

We train HSE inspectors on the appropriate use of thses techniques and can also share this knowledge with you through our bespoke consultancy services or relevant training courses which cover everything from 'Demystifying COMAH' to 'Technical Aspects of Safety Reports'.
