EC&I Engineering Compliance for COMAH Industries
Sites that fall under the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations 1999 must ensure that their electrical, control and instrumentation systems comply with appropriate benchmark standards. We can provide your business with a clear route to achieving and maintaining that compliance. Our services include support with risk assessment, system design, documentation and the development of appropriate inspection, maintenance and competency management processes.
Our expertise in functional safety covers all aspects of the design, installation, operation, maintenance and management of Safety Instrumented Systems including basic process control systems (BPCS), safety instrumented systems (SIS) design and assessment and alarm systems. We can help our clients in the development of new systems and the assessment and review of existing installations in line with the latest standards. We provide tangible solutions and practical recommendations to rectify any shortfalls.
Explosive Atmospheres - Hazardous Areas & DSEAR compliance
We provide DSEAR risk assessments and area classification exercises for businesses using or handling explosive dust, liquid and gaseous materials along with review and assessment in line with the appropriate standards. Where shortfalls are revealed, we offer a prioritised set of actions, practical recommendations and tangible solutions. We can also provide our easy-to-use stand-alone database to build a record of all equipment, plot plans, inspection details and fault reports to assist engineers in the tracking of issues relating to Hazardous Areas.
Electrical Power Systems - Electrical Safety & Compliance
With limited engineering resources on many process, industrial and manufacturing sites combined with increasingly demanding safety legislation, the management of electrical power systems is a growing challenge. We support you in establishing a well-documented, risk assessed and safe distribution system. Our electrical safety and compliance services include system audits, training and competency assessment and the development of safe working procedures. We provide arc flash assessments to help you understand, minimise and manage the risks and optimise the coordination of electrical protection systems.
