The Relationship Between Engineering & Safety

The Relationship Between Engineering & Safety

April 10, 2017 by Chris Oakley0

The success and safety of B&W Energy Services’ work is demonstrated through the detailed planning that is built into every project, i.e. B&W’s engineering packages. When taking on a new project, B&W engineers pull information from all fronts–the client, the equipment manufacturers, the field, and B&W’s past project experiences. With all of this information in hand, our engineers skillfully develop a master plan for the project.

With the big picture in mind, our engineering team creates a procedure not only addressing our needs, but the needs of our client’s operations and construction. Our procedures can be easily understood by the client and cover all potential safety risks. When our engineers work with your team, the all aspects of the process are covered and documented which creates the smoothest path forward for success and safety. For B&W, this involves thinking through and addressing every aspect of the job. From performing stress and flexibility analysis on piping systems, to identifying all mechanical preparations to the system, to listing out all job hazards and how to mitigate them (and everything in between), our engineering team covers it all up front. This way there is no guessing involved. It is all laid out in a detailed, easy-to-interpret way.

As the work is carried out meticulously, our procedures require tailgate safety meetings and a detailed job walk and turnover prior to starting every shift.  This is critical and necessary to address the constantly changing conditions of the job site and services being performed. 

Our team ensures safety on the project from start to finish. Seems like a pretty obvious statement, right? Not necessarily. When projects are not properly designed, accidents can happen. At B&W, this is unacceptable. This is why we place so much emphasis on having proper engineering with all safeguards identified and in place before the job starts. This serves to make sure our goals and our client’s goals are achieved and the plan is followed to completion. If the upfront engineering is not “up to snuff”, it could ultimately compromise the safety and success of a project– not to mention the potential for major cost overruns and lost schedule days.

Safety is of the utmost importance to B&W, which is why we go to such great lengths to put in place the best engineering, equipment and people for the job.
