Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The aim of this study is to provide an integrated framework that can optimize the implementation of the safety engineering system through the usage of a risk assessment. Current safety studies in oil & gas and construction exposed the presently weak areas in the risk assessment application thereby aiding the selection of the framework inputs in this research. There are three main sections employed as filters during the hazard identification stage in which each one of them has specific criteria. Such a focus will facilitate avoiding the kind generalizations practiced in most risk assessment sessions to cover all the possible scenarios that can occur with the existing hazards. Each group has three standards that should clarify the identified hazard, its dimension and interaction mechanism with the wanted construction activity. Following this full examination, a regular risk assessment procedure is carried out where risk estimation and evaluation will be conducted. At the same time, risk monitoring will be involved in the all steps to facilitate a healthy communication between the parties, especially the management and end-users.
