Risk Assessment, Reduction and Management
Based on a long involvement in machinery failures and accidents, BMT is uniquely positioned to provide machinery operators with advice on assessment, management and reduction of risk.
Delivery of this service can involve measurements on an operating machine analysis to assess design adequacy, machinery inspection and condition monitoring; all key areas of BMT's expertise.
An effective condition monitoring program is a primary tool for managing both risk reduction and maintenance. BMT can assist at all levels of planning, implementing or interpreting condition monitoring programs or, where appropriate provide a total service, running and managing the entire program.
BMT has an extensive background worldwide in carrying out independent machine inspections: structural, mechanical and electrical.
These inspections are usually undertaken to assess safety or operational risk, or as part of an overall risk management strategy.
In many cases, the operational life of a machine can be extended by some minor modifications to the structure of mechanical equipment. As a result, the life extension option often provides a cost effective alternative to replacing an existing machine. At BMT, the process usually involves measurement or analysis to identify potential failure areas, prediction or component life, and development of appropriate structural or mechanical upgrade strategies consistent with the client’s objectives and constraints.
These services are provided by our specialist operating company in Australia.
