Since the 1960s the global oil and chemical sectors have led the way in process safety management. Our expertise in Process Safety Assurance Benchmarking over almost two decades has been developed primarily in this sector and is, we believe, best-in-class.
Other complex industries have similar hazard profiles to oil and chemical, including pharmaceutical, explosives, mining, nuclear, engineering and transport.
Despite widespread adoption of safety management systems, major incidents continue to occur, albeit at very low frequency.
When they do, their impact is substantial: fatalities and serious injuries, and damage to the environment, company reputations, assets and operating capabilities.
At Fulcrium, we assist some of the world’s largest hazard sector companies, with Board-level outputs from our benchmarking.
Our proprietary benchmarking diagnostic tools pinpoint Process Safety Risks during all stages of any project lifecycle, and propose any required mitigation options. In several cases, this has resulted in dramatic improvements in optimising operating conditions in addition to improvements in risk control and quality systems.
Major incidents rarely result from a single cause but rather by multiple failures that coincide and collectively result in an exceptional event with severe consequences.
