Safety deficits in refinery plants, nuclear power plants, and petrochemical plants can threaten the environment and the health of employees and local residents. In the event of damage, downtime and loss of production can incur substantial added costs. We can provide complete safety verification services throughout the entire life cycle of your refinery, petrochemical and power plants. Our experts are here to assist you in all matters of plant safety, from planning the plant to damage control. We help you implement and comply with statutory regulations governing industrial safety, surface water protection, environment, nuclear engineering, and hazardous goods.
We can help you ensure the safety of your plant during operation as well as secure process safety. As part of the process safety management procedures, our experts conduct assessment of process safety management system, process hazard analysis, in-depth quantitative risk assessment and mechanical integrity assessment.

HAZOP stands for Hazard and Operability. This method analyzes risks consists through examination of processes and operations to identify and evaluate problems that may affect equipment, imperil personnel or impede efficient operation of the plant.
PAAG, the German abbreviation for “Prognose, Auffinden der Ursache, Abschätzen der Auswirkungen, Gegenmaßnahmen“, is a risk analysis method. Analysis is conducted in four steps made up of a risk forecast, determination of the causes and sources of risks, an evaluation of the potential consequences and the proposition of measures to prevent these hazards.
Process Hazard Analysis (PHA)
PHA consists of a series of assessments and evaluations of potential hazards which may arise from industrial processes. This type of analysis enables you to improve plant safety and reduce consequences in the event of damage.
Quantitative Risk Analysis (QRA)
The Quantitative Risk Analysis is a method which enables you to determine a quantitative value of the assessed risk or hazard. In addition to the risk, it also evaluates the potential loss as well as its probability to occur. This method is extremely useful in providing beneficial forecasts, especially during the design phase of a project.
Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA)
The Layers of Protection Analysis is a method used to assign your plant a safety integrity level (SIL). In other words, this technique enables you to determine a relative level of safety in order to implement measures to reduce on-site risk ensuring both employee and operational safety.
Risk Based Inspection (RBI)
The risk based inspection is a process which helps to identify and assess potential risks in plant equipment. It enables you to define the plant's level of risk in order to further develop inspection plans to prevent hazards on site.
Corrosion loop is a systematized analysis loop conducted during a risk based inspection. The system of corrosion loop enables to assess both the probability and possible consequences of failure.
