How We Help

Safety comes in many forms and is necessary when handling explosive objects as well as using them. And we’ll work with you every step of the way. Our services include:

  • Developing safety policies: If your company is new, we can help you develop a comprehensive operating plan with internal and external emergency action plans that manage your risk of an accident.
  • Evaluating processes: Every company can find some way to improve their safety techniques, and we can help. We look at every aspect of your processes to determine areas for improvement. Then we help you implement those changes to enhance overall safety through Hazards and Operability Studies (HAZOP) and Quantitative Risk Assessments (QRA).
  • Training workers: An Explosives safety plan is only as good as those who enforce it. That’s why we offer comprehensive training to employers and employees alike to ensure that everyone understands the importance of safety and how to carry out best safety techniques.
  • Designing workplaces: For new companies, we can start you off on the right foot with a safety-focused workplace design. Our team can guide you on layout and function to ensure your facilities are in line with safety codes and practices.

We are by your side every step of the way.
