E.S.M. recently facilitated a 4-day Detailed Design HAZOP for a major upgrade project on a minerals processing plant. E.S.M. worked with the owner, engineering service provider and vendors to facilitate the HAZOP in multiple sessions in line with progression of the design.
E.S.M. Safety in Design Review workshops apply structured hazard identification, through the analysis of asset interfaces, then guided reasonably practicable decision-making to agree hazard controls. The output is a hazard register, used by client organisations as the cornerstone in demonstrating that designs are safe so far as is reasonably practicable (SFAIRP).
E.S.M. specialises in the facilitation and delivery of Safety in Design (SiD) Review workshops. This is our most sought-after service.
We plan, facilitate and document (record) SiD Reviews.
Our SiD Reviews look at a design and systematically identify hazards through the analysis of asset interfaces (human-to-asset, asset-to-environment, asset-to-asset), at each life cycle phase, establishing hazard cause and credibility. A “reasonably practicable decision-making process” as well as the Hierarchy of Controls is applied to determine appropriate control measures.
