Accurate process safety data with comprehensive testing

Maintaining and promoting the highest standards in process safety and ensuring regulatory compliance require a thorough knowledge of the substances, equipment and processes and organisation utilises. Proper testing and expert analysis are essential to gathering and applying this information in order to prevent fires, explosions and other disasters.

We provide comprehensive testing services carried out in state-of-the-art laboratories by process safety experts and in accordance with local and international standards. The data we collect enables you to identify potential risk factors inherent in handling, storing and processing hazardous substances and can be used to develop a robust process safety management system.
