How we can support you
Risk and Safety
Risk and safety questions show a strong interconnection. Well founded risk and safety analysis are the basis for many technical projects. Standards and norms are important guidelines in this context, but during practical application of risk analysis, in depth analysis and interpretation of all relevant datasets and input variables is paramount.
IRIS helps you to put your risk- or safety- analysis on a solid methodical basis and offers competent support in data acquisition and data analytics. Constant improvement of own developments as well as development of new methods and procedures ensure reliable results for your project.
Environment and Technology
In our modern world nature and technology are intensively interrelated. The assessment of natural hazards and environmental risks for production sites and process plants, as well as environmental problems in normal operation and in the event of an accident requires technical expertise and a sense of proportion. The effects of climate change clearly show that the topic of natural hazards is growing steadily. Floods, forest fires or extreme weather events are just a few of the hazards that can affect process plants and production sites.
IRIS helps you to assess for your location natural hazards correctly. We offer extensive expert knowledge, both in the assessment of accident-related effects and emissions for planning purposes as well during accidents. For this purpose we also have highly efficient calculation methods and expert systems at your disposal.
