In the event of emergency situations, efficient escape, evacuation and rescue will be vital to avoid injuries and fatalities. Our expertise and track record spans multiple sectors including the oil & gas industry, maritime-, offshore wind- and transportation industry (e.g. tunnels) as well as buildings. The overall objective of such analyses is to evaluate whether:
- Escape to safe areas will be possible prior to being exposed to accidental loads (e.g. heat, smoke, toxic atmospheres).
- Timely evacuation from the analysed object will be possible in a controlled manner before critical exposure of safe areas and/or evacuation means occurs
- Rescue and treatment of persons not being able to evacuate will be possible
- Rescue treatment facilities will be available for injured persons following evacuation.
Evaluation of "bottlenecks" in escape routes, which may increase escape times, is a vital part of such analyses.
