Safety engineering

Safety is an integral part of Etteplan’s services. We provide expert support in all safety issues related to a new plant, machinery, electrical devices as well as to designing and improving the overall safety of a working equipment, machinery and process for operating a production facility or a plant. Companies such as Outotec, Stora Enso, KONE, Wärtsilä, Gasum, Outokumpu and Paulig rely on our safety engineering services.

Assessing potential risks and safety hazards requires in-depth knowledge in technology and work procedures. Practical implementation and interpretation of EU legislation, directives and standards can be a daunting task, where an external expert can bring invaluable contribution.

Etteplan’s safety engineers have years of experience in applying continent, area or local level standards.
