We have earned a trusted reputation for providing cost-effective solutions for risk management needs through the design of numerous new buildings and building upgrades around the world utilizing both consequence and risk-based methodologies.  BakerRisk works with you to develop efficient designs that improve the blast, thermal and/or toxic performance of a building to increase the protection provided to personnel.  We have supported the master planning of numerous greenfield and brownfield projects through feasibility analysis of on-site structures with the goal of developing a safe plant layout to mitigate overall vulnerability or risk.

Our engineers have extensive experience analyzing and designing buildings that are resistant to exposures from blast, fragment/debris, thermal, and toxic hazards. You will benefit from the combined knowledge of our team members who specialize in blast effects, structural design, and process safety risk methodologies. Our proprietary software seamlessly supports design and analysis work with methodologies that have been validated through years of experimental testing and accident investigation experience.

Changes in Facility Siting Standards: API 752, 753, & 756

In industries where the daily risks of potentially catastrophic events, such as vapor cloud explosions, are a constant concern, there’s no room for compromise – inherently safer design principles, effective hazard identifications and analyses, and adherence to up-to-date industry standards aren’t just important, they’re essential. Since its establishment in 1919, the American Petroleum Institute (API)…
