Fire Safety & Risk Management

With the high fire risk exposure and occurrence of catastrophic fire incidents in the energy industry, this service is developed to assure a safe operation of facilities by reducing the burden of unwanted fire through the applications of science and engineering. Generally, fire safety management is all about reducing the probability of unwanted ignition of any combustible material (preventive controls) and minimizing the consequence or impact of fire to people, property and business (protective controls). To achieve this, fire risk assessments are conducted to aid fire safety decision making which ultimately is all about producing acceptable levels of risk in relation to: life loss and Injury; property damage; and disruption of operation. To adequately assess the level of fire risk, there is need to conduct quantitative analysis (consequence modeling) to determine unfavorable conditions (and their impacts) that may arise as a result of a fire after which the possibilities (likelihood) of these consequences will be analyzed to arrive at a particular risk level. Then fire safety decision making in terms of preventive and protective controls would then be made. This entails designing buildings to reduce the chances of a fire occurring and control it more effectively once it has started; inevitably there will be many situations where humans are caught in burning structures. Fire design must assume this worst case and include factors which will help people escape.

Our fire safety & risk management services will help clients go through this process from design to operation of their facilities. We can also examine already existing buildings/facilities and recommend improvements in fire safety management of the facilities. Our complete fire safety & risk management services include:

  • Fire Risk Assessments for new and existing facilities
  • Hazardous/Electrical Area classification studies
  • Active and Passive fire protection studies
  • Flammable gas, toxic gas & fire detection studies
  • Escape, Evacuation and Rescue studies
  • Consequence modeling –  Release & Dispersion modeling, Fire modeling and Explosion modeling
