Safety Technology & Risk Management



As technological systems become more complex, it becomes increasingly difficult to identify safety hazards and to control their impact. Plant Managers and Engineers are becoming more aware that safety and risk touch on every aspect of the day to day running of their Plants and engineering and process systems if they are to comply with ever changing and demanding International, and National environmental and economic values and standards.

Unsafe systems can result in monies being lost due to accidents, disruption to production, criminal and civil prosecutions, loss of market share, and the degradation of company assets and the environment.
