HSE SERVICES FOR PROCESS INDUSTRIES

We offer comprehensive safety solutions to process industries throughout the different stages of a project. Our expertise covers the drafting of HSE plans and operational safety alike. We conduct preliminary risk inspections, such as environmental impact assessments, reaction matrices and HAZID analyses, and study fire loads.

We also conduct fire hazard classifications, consequence analyses and siting inspections, ATEX risk analyses and quantitative risk assessments (QRA).

We ensure the safety of our projects, compile Material Safety Data Sheets, draft reaction matrices and analyse the environmental impacts of the projects.

HSE COORDINATION

Our HSE coordination service ensures that the relevant resources are available at the right time, and analyses and other HSE activities are prepared in accordance with the highest quality standards to meet the customer’s needs.

Requirements that apply to analyses, inspections and plans are usually prescribed by law. HSE activities provide the basic data that other participants in the project can base their parts of the work on. The basic data should be free of errors as they can be costly if found at a late stage of a project. Our highly qualified safety experts ensure that the safety-related activities in your project are managed as a whole and implemented properly.

Our safety coordinator drafts a comprehensive HSE plan for the project that includes the definitions of the HSE activity requirements, schedules, necessary resources and final outputs. The HSE coordinator also monitors the implementation of the plan and takes responsibility of the relevant communications in the project.

OPERATIONAL SAFETY ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT

Our safety automation or safety experts take responsibility for operational safety management during projects. The management of operational safety can be included in the HSE plan of the project.

MACHINE SAFETY

SAFETY COORDINATORS

As experts in machine safety, we know the standards required in the Machine Directive as well as the changes to old machines required by the Government Decree on the Safe Use and Inspection of Work Equipment, which entered into force in 2009. We can offer you comprehensive technical knowhow for risk assessment and product safety management.

Product safety is an essential part of the operation of a machine, device or system. The Machine Directive requires that the harmonised standards be adhered to throughout the entire lifecycle of a device or a system.

Our safety coordinators handle all the necessary risk assessment and management methods, compliance inspections, product liability processes and plans. We are experts in product liability processes, lead the development of compliant products and offer support services and training.

MACHINE SAFETY ANALYSES

In machine safety, everything boils down to analysing potential risks. The Machine Directive and the so-called Machinery Ordinance define the essential health and safety requirements that apply to new machines and assemblies of machinery. Machines can be equipped with appropriate protective equipment based on a risk assessment. After the selection of the necessary protection, the dimensions of appropriate protective devices can be calculated based on the physical refuges in the machines and calculated stopping times. After the installation works, a new assessment will be carried out to verify whether the changes are sufficient.

After completion of the project, we will provide you with full documentation on all the work carried out.

ATEX

It is of utmost importance to ensure the safety of employees who handle explosive materials. We offer a wide range of ATEX services that support operators in ensuring safety and minimise the amount of related paperwork. We also draft explosion protection documents, for example. You can trust us to design your facility in a manner that ensures compliance with the requirements of the authorities.

OPERATIONAL SAFETY OF MACHINES

The functions of a machine’s automation system that diminish the risks the machine poses to people, the environment or production are called safety functions. The Machine Directive requires harmonised standards (ISO 12100, ISO 13849 or EN 62061, etc.) to be applied. Our experts can examine the reliability of the safety functions as required by the standards.

We establish the effect of each safety function to risk reduction (assignment of the PL/SIL level), operational requirements (response time, bypass, etc.) and verify the realisation of the Performance Level (PL) or Safety Integrity Level (SIL).

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS AND CE MARKING

We draft and compile the required product safety documentation, including the documents, manuals and other technical documentation required for the CE marking.

The CE marking is the manufacturer’s declaration that the machine it places on the market conforms to the applicable essential health and safety requirements.

We ensure that any residual risks detected in the risk assessment are addressed in the operating instruction manual and other technical documentation and thus communicated to the end users.

We make sure that the person who signs the Declaration of Conformity can safely and confidently do so.

OTHER SAFETY SERVICES

SAFETY IN CONSTRUCTION

We conduct construction condition inspections and draft HSE plans for construction to ensure personal safety during construction.

DETERMINATION OF RISK ANALYSIS METHODS AND CALIBRATION SERVICES

We determine the necessary risk analysis methods and also offer calibration services.

TRAINING, SUPPORT AND DEVELOPMENT

We plan and organise different kinds of training events related to safety for companies. We can also support and assist in the development of a company’s internal safety culture.
