The most cost effective time for implementing process safety design elements is during the planning stages of the project management process.

Addressing the Gap: Implementing a proper risk assessment strategy ranging from assisting with determining a preferred alternative to the delivery of a “ready for construction” design that has demonstrated that the risks have been managed requires planning, the execution of that plan and the results from the plan deliverables incorporated into the design all along the way
