SAFETY CASE DEVELOPMENT & INTEGRATION
A Safety Case is more than a document. It is a living plan that provides a method of implementing an operationally-aligned safety culture with a facility's specific operational requirements.
The Safety Case is a tool to ensure that businesses are managing their risks in accordance with the law, while enabling effective fulfillment of project requirements and stakeholder expectations. We use our expertise in Safety Case management and development to ensure that our clients gain cross-disciplinary value from the preparation process and use the Safety Case as intended. In addition to specialising in Australian Safety Cases, we also specialise in production of Singapore Safety Case as dictated by the Major Hazards Department (MHD) and National Environmental Agency (NEA). More information specific to the Singapore guidelines are available here.
A Safety Case is vital to the maintenance of a goals-based safety management environment. It allows each operator to decide upon their specific operational requirements and then determine the tailored risk profile associated with their particular operational hazards. It demonstrates to personnel, management, stakeholders and regulators that all hazards are adequately managed and that all risks are As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP).
Preparation and management of the Safety Case is our core business. We engage at every stage of safety case preparation, revision and approval, with the aim of genuinely improving the safety of our clients' operations.
The Safety Case is built on an effective process of identifying and assessing the risks to a facility or operation. At the heart of this process is the suite of safety documents called the Formal Safety Assessments (FSAs). These documents are built by understanding the details of a client's operations and applying the best practice methods of risk assessment to both the accident and response aspects of system safety.
We regularly build an FSA right from the data collection stage, through the completion of the assessment, and then use the resulting information in the preparation of the Safety Case.
