SSL has over twenty years of history providing process safety support to the process industries. Throughout this history, we work with our clients to improve their systems to reduce their hazard and risk profiles. In recent years, these efforts have become more structured with the development of a process safety audit that covers the organisation and facility and benchmarks an organisation against recognised good practice. The following organisations have used this service to improve their safety management and understand their gaps prior to submitting their safety case to the regulator.

For all of these clients, the outcomes of these audits have been used to strengthen their process safety management systems. We have conducted dozens of additional gap studies for single element reviews.
