By its very nature, a research and development site is in constant change. We try things that have not been done before. We create and test new processes, new chemical formulas, new products and new production techniques. Is it possible to find common ground for managing risk in such a diverse environment? The answer is yes...but with some thought required. With careful assessment of the risks, and acknowledgement when the risks are truly unknown, a standard for the minimum level and types of acceptable controls and barriers can be established. But, that is a minimum. There is still some work needed to reduce your risk to as low as reasonably practicable. See how the Shell Technology Center Houston has used a risk assessment matrix and model BowTies to develop a process to standardize minimum requirements to manage health, safety and environmental risks.
