Hazardous Area Compliance / Inspection / DSEAR Risk Assessment

Inglewood Engineering Consultancy (IEC) are leading experts in the field of industrial electrical compliance. Broadly speaking, we are practitioners in assessment, inspection and design relating to instrument , electrical and control equipment located in areas covered by the safety regulations. To take some specific examples it means we do DSEAR risk assessments; we do BS7671 inspection and testing; we do SIL determinations. Where there are underlying issues with an installation we advise accordingly on any faulty equipment or design.

Our compliance services include all aspects of Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations (DSEAR) compliance, Electricity at Work Regulations (EAWR) compliance and Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS).  We have the means to guide companies through the whole process if necessary; from determining the extent of any risk in the first place to establishing long term practices for staying on top of things once everything is in order.

Where installations fall short of the required standards we provide appropriate solutions to make the plant safe and compliant. At times this is simply a matter of proving compliance, at other times it may need extensive re-design. Remedial design is invariably set in the context of a working plant, and so requires careful planning. In this respect we draw on our long experience in working closely with clients and installers to minimise disruption.
