Our Services & Expertise
At Vanguard, our aim is to show our clients that they can build a safer, more cost-effective and productive business by aligning their safety goals with their operational goals. We engage in any stage of design, fabrication, installation, operation, or decommissioning projects to help our clients avoid or mitigate the inherent risks of their facilities.
The success of a business depends on the management of risk – because it’s only by, identifying, acknowledging and addressing risks proactively that a business can maintain profitability. Vanguard’s Risk Assessment and Management services mean you can anticipate possible risks and develop internal protocols to eliminate them.
A Safety Case is more than a document. It is a living plan that ensures a business can manage risk in accordance with the law and with stakeholder expectations. Vanguard has worked with many companies embarking on the safety case process. The organisation almost always gains a greater insight into itself and moves forward with greater understanding in a safer and more sustainable way.
Vanguard Solutions has an in-house Functional Safety and Systems Safety Engineering team with diverse experience in the Oil & Gas, Mining, Air Traffic Management, Nuclear Defence and Railway Systems sectors.
Reliability and Availability Engineering is all about performance and long-term cost management. A well-designed Reliability and Availability Plan ensures unnecessary downtime is always avoided.
At Vanguard, we believe in developing projects that are both environmentally sound and sustainable. Increased regulatory requirements and heightened public awareness over the last few decades have meant the reporting of environmental impact assessments to key stakeholders, regulators and the general public are now standard practice.
We are experienced facilitators and third-party participants of numerous engineering workshops, including HAZOP and LOPA Workshops. These workshops are designed to ensure that safety is a priority and not an afterthought, equipping your employees with the critical knowledge to ensure a thorough assessment of all aspects of your project’s environment is properly analysed.
Vanguard runs practical and cost-effective safety, risk, reliability engineering and management workshops and on-line courses. The workshops are taught by our senior staff members and can be held in our training rooms or, onsite or on-line.
