Our dedicated engineering safety team provides the full range of risk assessment and loss prevention services and has developed a recognised expertise in health and safety (risk to people and assets), environmental risk and impact, facility lifecycle risk and project risk and mitigation solutions.

The team has the necessary tools, techniques and experience to perform a comprehensive hazard identification, consequence analysis, loss estimation and options analysis, which are a fundamental part of our engineered solutions. Typical services include:

  • Reliability, availability and maintainability studies (RAM)
  • Failure modes, effects and criticality analysis (FMECA formal safety assessments)
  • Hazard identification and assessment (HAZID)
  • Fire and explosion analysis, mitigation and protection
  • Hazard and operability studies HAZOP (chairing, managing and conducting close-out)

  • Horne & Wren (NUI, no helideck)
  • Cutter/K17 (NUI, no helideck)
  • Babbage (NUI with helideck)
  • Grove (re-use of Camelot CB, NUI with helideck)
