Safety & Risk Management
Controlling Material Risks in Industry
The current global business environment is motivating organisations to consider the full social and ethical impacts of their corporate activities and policies. Protecting the Health and Safety of a workforce not only reduces pain and suffering, it also protects the bottom line. Indeed given the nature of the risks involved, ensuring the safety and integrity of business assets and people is a key success factor to operate efficiently any industrial site, deliver the performance expected, and keep your employees safe. Keeping people and activities safe is our top priority. Aiming for Zero fatalities and no incidents that harm people is a key deliverable for operations that require controls and needs to reduce impacts on people, environment and neighbours. Those companies who are able to prove a responsible approach to broader social and ethical issues will gain a vital competitive edge and inspire the confidence of stakeholders such as client, investors, local community and consumers.
A successful safety process relies on an intimate understanding of the interactions among people, organization, equipment and operations to identify material risks. Once these material risks have been identified, it is time to develop the appropriate fatal and catastrophic risk controls and effectively categorise these material risks into Critical Controls and Performance Standards. As a result, the likelihood and severity of high risk activities are systematically reduced, to ALARP and Zero harm. Bureau Veritas’ Safety consulting services focus on a strategically balanced approach to workplace safety by providing business specific, process-oriented and worker-appropriate solutions. Our project managers and consultants and on-site support professionals anticipate and recognize safety issues, evaluate these issues and recommend solutions.
