Safety Report Management and Review
Safety reports for industrial installations
As an operator of installations, you must ensure that your facilities are safe and do not expose your people or business to unacceptable levels of risk. The risk profile can change over time due to factors such as plant modifications, the impact of age on operating conditions and new ownership. Regulators and other stakeholders ask operators to justify the continuing operation of an installation through safety reports.
We support clients to undertake the safety report approach, which started in the UK but is now recognised by regulators in other countries and has led to the introduction of safety report systems worldwide. Several large international oil and gas operators have independently recognised the benefits of the approach and voluntarily introduced safety report systems to their global operations.
The development and update of safety report documents is a task which takes input from a range of discipline engineers and technologists working for the operator as staff or consultants, etc.
A life cycle approach is required to cover design notification, operations, re-vamp, and eventual abandonment.
A safety report is assessed under three principal adequacy criteria:
Major hazards identification, risk assessment, and control
Management systems to ensure compliance with statutory health and safety requirements
Arrangements for auditing and reporting
During our review, our expert team will examine the basic assumptions made in the safety case as well as its content. Bureau Veritas will also take account of all relevant changes and new knowledge since acceptance or the last review, to ensure that the safety case remains valid.
