SAFETY CASES

Rigtech Independent can prepare or audit Safety Cases and the Safety Management system.

In the UK we can audit the implementation of Safety Case requirements, from emergency response, evacuation and escape to the preparation of performance standards within a written scheme of verification.

Maintenance activity can be audited to ensure it fulfills the Written Scheme and data monitoring can be verified to ensure performance standards are proven.

As well as the management system, technical auditing can help assure the integrity of the safety systems on an installation, issues such as:

  • Lifeboat and Davit condition, maintenance and preparedness.
  • Fixed Firefighting systems operational preparedness.
  • Fire and Gas detection systems.
  • Access to sea systems
