HSE and safety case development for oil and gas

Our safety case development services help you to comply with safety and environmental legislation by identifying safety critical aspects of a facility, both technical and managerial, defining appropriate performance standards, reducing risks to a level that is as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP) and ensuring a robust safety case is developed.

Health and Safety Executive (HSE) case development

HSE case development for drilling operations documents a systematic risk management approach and serves as a tool to maintain and improve health, safety, environmental and operational performance based on International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) guidelines.

Safety Case development

Safety documentation should include specific descriptions of the technical systems, the technical conditions, the organisation, procedures, standards, risk levels, training and other relevant aspects for the safety in the system. In many industries this safety documentation is assembled in a safety case as it demonstrates an operator's commitment to reducing risks to ALARP.

The content in a safety case will vary from industry to industry and between different countries and regimes, but the following are items that most often are included:

  • Introduction
  • Description of the facility/system
  • Safety management system
  • Formal safety assessments and risk controls
  • ALARP demonstration
  • Emergency preparedness
  • Justification of operations


  • Achieve legislative compliance
  • Develop a robust safety case
  • Reduce risks to a level that is as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP)
  • Improve health, safety, environmental and operational performance
