ATKINS has been awarded a five-year contract to provide technical safety and human factors services to Shell.

Atkins says the work will be done by its teams in Australia, UK and the US for Shell’s global assets and projects. This will include providing technical safety reviews such as HAZOP and HAZID; safety studies including quantitative risk assessments; specialist work around major hazards, consequence modelling and facility siting. Atkins will also deliver technical safety training programme to Shell personnel and provide human factors engineering services.

Craig Muir, President of Resources at Atkins’ parent company SNC-Lavalin, said: “We will deploy a range of in-house developed digital tools that help reduce costs and improve efficiency across Shell’s onshore and offshore assets, as well as deliver safety solutions to ensure optimal safety standards to employees and the environment.”

The agreement builds on work carried out by Atkins for Shell over the past 20 years focussed on project and operational support.
