Operational & System Safety

Operational & System Safety

The modern society demands increasing levels of safety from every new technology that is introduced into service. Complex technological systems often interact with their users and environment in ways that are not immediately obvious and may lead to the emergence of hazards. The best way to address the emergence of hazards is to design them out of the system or to implement design solutions that mitigates the hazards.

The safe operation of these complex systems will need to be addressed differently through the implementation of a safety culture and framework that is scalable and tailored to the operational demands. Our people understands the interplay between technology and the operational environment. With experience designing highly complex military systems and operational experience working on aircraft carrier flight decks, often acknowledged as the most hazardous work environment imaginable, we are well equipped to help our customers design safe products and operate them safely.

With our global presence, we bring the best system safety and operational safety practices to our customers. Be it the latest multi-mission warship or complex electrical grid switching operations, we have our systematic approach to help our customers deliver safe projects.

Our capabilities include:

  • MIL-STD-882 System Safety Program Implementation
  • SAE ARP4671 Safety Methodologies
  • Rail Safety
  • Hazardous Materials
  • Operational Safety
    • Critical Field Communications
    • Training Needs Analysis
    • Operational Excellence Framework
    • Concept of Operations
