Hazard and Operability Studies (HAZOP)
Our experience in investigating electrical incidences and accidents commonly reveals that equipment design or installation was a contributing factor, and that the incident may have been avoided had it not been for that design or installation flaw.
At ESS we would much prefer to assist you in removing potential hazards at the design stage of a new installation, than be called in to lead an investigation on a serious incident after the new equipment had been installed. As always, prevention is better than a cure. We have adopted the HAZOP methodology (Hazard and Operability Studies) to be able to achieve this proactive outcome for you.
A HAZOP is a structured and systematic examination of a planned process or operation in order to identify and evaluate problems that may represent risks to personnel or equipment, or prevent efficient operation. It is carried out by a multi-disciplinary HAZOP team and lead by a trained and experienced HAZOP Facilitator.
If you have plans for new equipment or process installations, then get us in to work with you to design out any possible hazards at design stage, avoiding injury, re-design and re-manufacture.
Incident Cause Analysis (ICAM)
When serious or major electrical incidents or accidents occur, it often makes sense to involve an impartial, independent third party to lead, or participate in the investigation and analysis.
ESS’ qualified staff will lead investigations using the Incident Cause Analysis Method (ICAM).
The ICAM methodology recognises that major incidents and accidents are very rarely the result of a single act or condition, but are the consequence of a number of factors or failures occurring simultaneously or in sequence.
The investigative approach identifies what really went wrong, and our ICAM Investigators can help you understand and address the all root causes of your adverse event, allowing you to formulate and put in place robust responses to ensure that such events are not repeated.
