In HIRA, our experts follow a systematic process that consists of a number of sequential steps such as hazard identification, consequence & frequency assessment, risk estimation based on the existing controls, and recommendations to reduce those risks which are not under acceptable limits.
Our role is identifying hazards associated with the operations and select worst-case scenarios for estimation of consequences. Reputed software models will be used for consequence estimation. Based on the estimated frequency of occurrence, risk reduction measures will be suggested to the management for effective implementation.
Samarth safety uses PHA methodology as required under various phases.
The first phase of the analysis is dedicated to gathering all the applicable safety information about the materials handled, the chemical process and conditions, the control methods employed, and the equipment and systems’ use. The available safety information relevant to the targeted approachis gleaned from Safety Data Sheets (SDS’s), laboratory testing, design manuals, operating procedures, and equipment manufacturers/suppliers.
During the PHA exercise for each hazard identified, the team examines the existing safeguards that prevent or mitigate the undesired consequences in addition to proposing new measures should they be required.
The final critical aspect of the PHA effort is to provide adequate documentation of the analysis, its findings, and recommendations. A risk management plan must follow the PHA in order to ensure that effective follow-up and closure occurs.
We at Samarth safety are specialists in the entire field of process hazard analysis methods, including what-if checklists, hazard and operability studies (HAZOP), failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA), fault tree analysis (FTA), layers of protection analysis (LOPA) and more.
We assemble our teams under the guidance of an experienced and knowledgeable leader, composed of members with diverse experience and expertise, which helps deliver accurate solutions for your specific necessities.
Our thorough examination and research help in accumulating the necessary process safety information, including hazardous materials properties such as combustibility, flammability, explosively, reactivity, self-heating, toxicity, electrostatic properties, as well as assembling and leading the PHA team and drawing up reports and documenting outcomes.
We at Samarth safety offer, Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA), which is another risk assessment technique, more commonly used to determine the required Safety Integrity Level (SIL) for Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) under specific standards.
With the use of this, we aim at minimizing causalities. This methodology essentially differentiates between installed risk reduction measures. The outcome from most risk assessment techniques records all the risk reduction measures. These measures can include items of plant and equipment, human actions and procedures, etc.
LOPA defines certain measures as special and calls them Independent Protection Layers (IPLs).
All the identified risk reduction measures are screened, and non-IPLs are removed before deciding if the remaining IPLs reduce the level of risk to an acceptable Target Risk Level or not. The story of risk reduction achieved or credit for each identified IPL is determined using a LOPA Rule Book (which specifies how risk reduction credits can be awarded for various situations).
We are actively involved in helping operators to determine whether or not proposed, and existing safety-related systems can provide the necessary level of risk reduction or SIL, consistent with the requirements of the standards.
We assist you in creating a comprehensive plan for handling emergencies, which is a major step toward preventing disasters. However, it is difficult to predict all of the problems that may happen unless the plan is tested. Exercises and drills may be conducted to practice all or critical portions (such as evacuation) of the program. A thorough and immediate review after each workout, training, or after an actual emergency will point out areas that require improvement. Knowledge of individual responsibilities can be evaluated through paper tests or interviews.
The plan should be revised when shortcomings have become known and should be reviewed at least annually. Changes in plant infrastructure, processes, and materials used, and key personnel is occasions for updating the plan.
It is essential that all providers must be made for the training of both individuals and teams if they are expected to perform adequately in an emergency. An annual full-scale exercise will help in maintaining a high level of proficiency.
Process Safety Management is a primary function for assuring safe and reliable production operation. However, unforeseen weaknesses or ‘gaps’ in those processes may lead to Major Accident events, where the consequential effects are either multiple fatalities or catastrophic asset damage, or both. Therefore, the management processes need to be holistic, and application must also be meticulous as any shortfalls, or ‘gaps’ in either have the potential to be catastrophic. We at Samarth safety help you achieve this target efficiently.
Samarth Safety works to support operators of Major Accident Hazard facilities by conducting comprehensive Audits (or ‘Gap Analyses’) of their existing Process Safety Management and Asset Integrity Management systems. The Audits are a vital element of on-going performance assessment; they shall serve to examine the scope and extent of what is in place currently and how this is performing, identifying weaknesses and/or gaps. This shall then help to define the means by which those weaknesses and/or openings may be addressed and rectified going forward.
The scope of a given Audit is usually tailored to suit the primary objectives thereof (such as performance bench-marking, Regulatory/Corporate compliance, and the like).

Each water conservation measure will include a description of the problem, the proposed solution, the estimated water savings, the cost to implement the resolution, and estimated payback and protection for each recommended measure. We also provide information about rebates, incentives, or other applicable programs.
As part of the audit, we will conduct a water balance, which will compare the metered water amounts with the estimated water usage of all of the water-consuming devices. From this, we have in the past been able to identify leaks and metering problems.
The purpose of a water audit report is to provide an assessment of current water usage practices and provide a roadmap towards decreasing water usage in the future. During the water audit services, we do the following:
We provide our clients WASH assessment prior to starting up their operations under various situations, including COVID 19 pandemic outbreak, and have a status quo check on the conformance to the guidelines stipulated by the Ministry of Home Affairs or other government bodies (local, state, and national) or industry-specific guidelines and ensure safe operations and workplace by safeguarding health and safety of employees, customers, suppliers, all stake-holders and public in general including people with a disability, older people, women, and children.
Our methodology in it is to evaluate the level of accessibility and safety of existing water and/or sanitation facility and its surroundings and to identify possible changes or improvements. The audit identifies simple changes to facilities and their surroundings that can improve their usability for a wide range of users, thus avoiding the need for separate ‘special’ provisions. The audit is a way for stake-holders to consider any risks to safety from using the facilities and to consider if anything can be done to reduce the risks. WASH standard is applicable for every Organization / Industry / Business (manufacturing, services, trade, etc.).
Our objectives of the WASH standard is to provide a holistic report to the client on the preparedness and processes established with regard to Hygiene and Safety, especially to Covid 19 pandemic situation, and ensure in the larger interest of the society that compliance is set with regarding requirements stipulated as applicable by Ministry of Home Affairs or relevant local or state or national body so that to prevent further spreading of the uncontrolled situations.
Samarth safety will conduct an adequate, preliminary, Industrial Hygiene audit of your company’s facilities. The purpose of an initial audit is to determine if the need exists for a full formal audit. The preliminary audit will encompass the review and evaluation of the workplace occupational environment for suspect physical, chemical, and biological factors that can cause ill health.
The preliminary audit report will classify specific findings that represent out of compliance issues, identify areas that require the collection of tangible information through air monitoring, or other physical sampling methods, discuss anticipated needs for engineering and administrative controls and establish recommendations to initiate corrective actions. Action steps will be shown for individual program areas in-order to implement correction plans for identified deficiencies. This will include exceptions to established governmental regulations as well as the good practices that the facility has developed and implemented.
At Samarth safety, we work with Facilities, Planning, and Operations management to develop comprehensive audit objectives. This will be accomplished by reviewing the information and data collected during the preliminary audit.
Our team of safety, indoor environment, and engineering experts subscribe to the five basic tenets of industrial hygiene recognized as industry best practices:
Under the evaluation, the core areas examined are Chemical hazards, Physical hazards, Biological hazards, and Ergonomic hazards, Engineering or Administrative Controls, Ventilation, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
There may be several instances where certain un-identified faults may occur per se, and it may not only destroy the equipment of its origin but also may spread in the system and cause total failure ultimately preventing it from operating at all. Our team of experts at Samarth Safety will help you to prevent and observe the following:
We at Samarth Safety will assure you with every piece of advice on the protective system which isolates a faulty element. To fulfill it, we’ll satisfy the four primary requirements of our client:
Reliability is a qualitative term. It can be expressed as a probability of failure.
Our experts will update you with the records to show that the order of likelihood of failure is relays, breakers, wiring, current transformers, voltage transformers and battery.
The property by which only the faulty element of the system is isolated and the remaining healthy sections are left intact. Selectivity is absolute if the protection responds only to faults within its own zone and relative if it is obtained by grading the setting of protections of several zones which may Power System Protection respond to a given fault. The systems of protection which in principle are absolutely selective are known as unit systems. The systems in which selectivity is relative are non-unit system.
Protective relays are required to be quick-acting due to the following reasons:
Quantitative Risk Analysis is proven as a valuable management tool in assessing the overall safety performance of an Industry.
Samarth safety offers you premium services for your industry to help you make the best use of the resources.
Our team helps you to identify, quantify, and assess the risk from the facility from the storage and handling of chemical products.

Furthermore, we provide Risk Analysis techniques along with advanced quantitative means to supplement other hazard identification, analysis, assessment, control, and management methods to identify the potential for such incidents and to evaluate control strategies.
QRA is widely used in assessing the risk in Oil & Gas Installations, especially refineries, tank farms, cross country pipelines, bottling plants, terminals, etc.
Hazard Identification is a critical step in Risk Analysis. Many aids are available, including What-if Analysis, Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) Studies, Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), and Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA), etc.,
Risks are quantified by our team of experts and ranked accordingly based on their severity and probability. Acceptability of the estimated risk must then be judged based upon criteria appropriate to the particular situation. This personalized study report is used to understand the significance of existing control measures and to follow the measures continuously. Wherever possible, additional risk control measures are adopted by our team to reduce the risk levels.
A Hazard and Operability Study systematically investigates each element in a process. The goal is to find potential situations that would cause that element to pose a hazard or limit the operability of the process as a whole. There are four basic steps to the process:
In HAZOP, our team of experienced professionals carefully reviews a process or operation in a systematic manner to determine whether deviations from the design or operational intent can lead to undesirable consequences. This technique can be used for continuous or batch processes and can be adopted to evaluate written procedures. Our team of experienced professionals forms a specialized HAZOP team and lists potential causes and consequences of the deviation as well as existing safeguards protecting against the variation. When the team determines that inadequate safeguards exist for a credible variation, it usually recommends the action be taken to reduce the risk.
Our team of experts at Samarth Safety has adopted the methodology of identifying the fire risks at the workplace as outlined by the regulating authorities of India. After identifying the risks, their evaluation and assessment have been carried out based on two criteria, i.e., frequency of occurrence of unwanted event or situations and the harm or extent of damage that unwanted events would cause that were to occur.
It may be noted that physical conditions that existed during the site visit were the basis for assessment. Due weightage was given to the existence of hardware systems like fire resistant construction, good electrical systems, fire protection equipment,etc.The practices followed in the premises with regard to safety.
Our team at Samarth safety helps you to understand and evaluate the effectiveness of the implementation of existing management systems and find the gaps with respect to recommendations as per the relevant standards of the authorities and best international standard practices in accordance with the management system.
