RAS become Chemical Testing Partner of Sigma-HSE

Having recently become a Chemical Testing Partner of Sigma-HSE we can offer you chemical testing right when you need it. We know it can be a challenge when you have a material but don’t know its properties. For example, take an organic powder; is it combustible? We can now arrange flammable and explosive test data […]

Managing flood risk – what can you really do?

When we think of flooding, images of inundation and devastation typically come to mind, whether that’s for domestic communities or industrial areas. The credibility of flooding initiating and exacerbating major accidents cannot be questioned. However, the stereotypical image of catastrophic flooding can sometimes lead to a degree of indifference or even fatalism when it comes […]

Ambient temperatures – are we at risk of becoming complacent?

With the climate becoming increasingly difficult to accurately predict, it is essential that we are aware of new hazards it can present us with. When it comes to process safety and the containment of hazardous substances, temperature is an important factor which requires management and control to ensure accidents such as pool fires and flash […]
