The chemicals industry sector involves a huge range of process, environments and conditions, but above all high hazard scenarios, including process equipment, tanks, vessels, piping, pumps and related assets, all of which have an intrinsic risk of failure, be that gradual or catastrophic.


Plant disasters, which are fortunately rare, remind us all of the potential price to pay for modern living. Bhopal, Seveso, Flixborough are all names which will be familiar to anyone working in the chemical sector. The consequence of these incidents have lived with us for years, and will continue to do so. What effect this has on the employees, neighbours, companies and society around such sites can only be imagined, but certainly is not good for any corporation or its public relations.


Apart from the obvious impact of a major disaster in terms of safety and environmental factors, smaller incidents also lead to downtime, loss of production capacity, reduced profitability and consequently business risk.


Minimising these impacts is vital to process continuity and management of risks. This is the basis of our slogan, 'maximising assets, minimising risks'.
