Safety, Environment & Risk Management
Legislation and regulation for improving safety and environmental performance are now important business risk factors for your enterprise to manage effectively if it is to continue to succeed. The breadth and level of regulation can change across many jurisdictions and projects to the point where it can be confusing for you to be confident that all eventualities have been considered and planned for.
The SeaTec Safety, Environment and Risk (SER) team provides the level of knowledge and experience in these areas that your enterprise requires. The SER team operates across a broad range of markets having managed risk in the following industries:
- Commercial marine
- Naval operations
- Offshore oil & gas
- Energy and utilities
- Military training facilities
Safety of your personnel and assets is paramount to your continued operation as a business. An organisation without a safety culture presents a risk for the employees and the investors, not only from injury or financial loss but from legal liability should an incident occur. Whilst safety can never be complete, an organisation needs a safety management process to minimise the risk to people, assets and the environment.
SeaTec have a wealth of experience in safety management of projects, using the Formal Safety Assessment (FSA) method. The FSA method is a structured and systematic way for enhancing safety including the protection of life, the health of persons and assets by using risk analysis and cost benefit analysis.
If you operate world-wide many legal jurisdictions require that major engineering and infrastructure projects consider safety explicitly and prepare a formal safety case. SeaTec prepare safety cases that will meet the UK HSE and UK Ministry of Defence.
To assist you with managing your enterprise’s response to environmental challenges, SeaTec provide a range of capabilities. The benefits to your organisation of these services are:
- Greater understanding of how your business affects the environment.
Recognise the environmental risks and opportunities available to your business.

In an increasingly global world, managing business risk is becoming more important as the impact of unforeseen events can have catastrophic consequences for your business enterprise. As resources of all kinds are always limited in some way, it is not possible to avoid all risks. Having a structured approach to risk management will assist your enterprise in planning and minimising the impact of risks when they do occur.

- Design and operation of assets across all trades of the shipping industry.
