Innescol Nuclear Safety is involved in the production of safety cases for industrial plants. In constructing a safety case, the following areas are typically relevant:

Hazard Identification (HAZID): a process by which hazards can be identified (including their causes, potential consequences and safeguards). Techniques include HAZOP, FMEA, Desktop Analysis, PHA.

Design Basis Accident Assessment: a mainly qualitative approach to safety analysis, where the depth and configuration of the safety systems are proportional to the demand rate thereon, and the potential consequences if the safety systems fail.

Probabilistic Risk Assessment: quantification of the risk, with comparison against accepted risk targets to demonstrate that the risks are acceptably low.

ALARP Analysis: demonstration that the risks are not only acceptably low, but are as low as reasonably practicable.

Other related services include:

Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM) Modelling: including demonstration and optimisation of a system's reliability.

Loss Prevention: identification of causes of major disruptions to a process with a view to reducing their potential to occur and mitigating their consequences.
