The Health, Safety and Environmental Impact Assessment is a systematic process of identifying the impact of existing, new or substantially altered projects on health, safety and the environment.
Nowadays, the impact of process industry / manufacturer operations on the health and safety of their staff and that of the communities in which they are located, as well as the surrounding environment, is coming under scrutiny from various quarters. It is therefore important that an organization is able to identify and mitigate any issues that might have an adverse effect on these HSE areas.
RCS can start by benchmarking your current activities and highlighting potential exposures and significant HSE risks. We then look at the big picture, to see what changes can be made in the way you work. An HSE Impact Assessment will then be conducted to demonstrate that the following have been achieved:
Prevention plan for major accidents and the HSE Management System are streamlined and put into effect
Safety & health hazards and environmental impacts have been identified, recorded and assessed
Environmental impacts and risks are being managed
Suitable measures have been identified and the critical equipment, systems and activities are in place
On-site and off-site emergency plans are prepared
A sound overall plan is in place to safeguard life, property, environment and the business
Identifying potential HSE risks and taking the necessary measures to deal with them quickly and effectively can result in cost savings by removing the risk of unnecessary downtime, avoiding preventable injuries and preventing environmental disasters.
