Safety Engineering


Safe By Design

Embark Consulting Safety Engineering Services support operators and EPC’s through the early planning and design stages of each project to define health and safety risks are identified in the early stages of a project when the cost of making significant design changes is minimal.


An Opportunity

To Influence Risk

Safety Engineering is an integral part of the design process. It provides an opportunity to influence and eliminate or reduce risk levels during early design phases when costs of change to a design are minimal. The influence on risk during construction, operational, and maintenance has its greatest impact. 

Sector Diversity

Our Safety Engineering specialists work on global projects at all stages of the design process across a diverse range of sectors.

Our project portfolio is well positioned in high-risk environments that require a level of safety-critical design in oil and gas, aviation, marine, nuclear and energy sectors.

We collaborate with businesses either as part of a design team for an operator or for an EPC on Oil and gas rigs, oils and gas plants, refineries, combined cycle power generation, ship repair, and shipbuilding. 

We have a proven track record of support from the design phase, conceptual design through to front end engineering (FEED), and into detailed design and commissioning.


Our Philosophy

The Safety and HSE design philosophies are clearly defined in regulations, design standards, and guidelines.

Our Safety Engineering Consultants take a risk-based review of the probability as well as the consequences of a hazard (qualitatively and quantitatively) and assessed the hazard against the acceptance criteria.

Safety Cases are drawn up in detail to demonstrate that the risks meeting ALARP
