Informed decision making improves business performance for high consequence operations

No matter where your project sits on the energy provision lifecycle, our extensive foreseeable hazards database gives you the insights you need to mitigate risk.

Click an option below to see the foreseeable hazards most likely to impact your next project:

Hazard: Working over water

How this hazards manifests:

Consider during design of safety barriers located on top of the nacelle.

Typical Control Measures

Safety barriers; use a fully tested and maintained fall protection system; immersion suits and self inflating life jackets. Rescue facilities on immediate standby.

Hazard: Working at height

How this hazards manifests:

Consider during design of safety barriers located on top of the nacelle. Adequate anchor points.

Typical Control Measures

Staff not be allowed to climb the turbine without a second person present and trained in emergency rescue. Adequate fall prevention and or fall protection in place. Always anchored in position with 2 lanyards to allow movement as required.

Hazard: Dust

How this hazards manifests:

Consideration of dust suppression for ground works

Typical Control Measures

Dust suppression; monitoring; dust/water spray. Eye protection and RPE

Component failure (mechanical, structural failure)

Hazard present in: Planning and Design, Construction, Commissioning & testing, Operation, Maintenance & Services, Decommissioning

How this hazards manifests:

To be considered, i.e. fail-to-safe modes, e.g. to ensure all critical component failures fail to a safe condition and prevent additional runaway failure events;

Typical Control Measures

HAZOP and HAZAN studies conducted during the design phases to confirm structural and safety integrity.
