Safety is a primary concern for all companies when it comes to operations and design engineering. Grantek understands the importance of safety, especially when integrating any system – safe design is one of the best investments a company can make.
Grantek helps companies navigate the complex regulatory requirements for Safety through industry consensus standards, automation and engineering expertise, and leadership in industry best practices. It is Grantek’s policy to perform a Safety Risk Assessment on every project. Accounting for safety at the beginning of a project process saves money for our clients in the long run, as it allows improvements in safety and the use of new technology to improve productivity.

Risk Reduction Plans and Safety Requirement Specifications are completed to establish a clear set of expectations before beginning a remediation project.
