Identify and mitigate operations and personnel risks to minimize losses

Exponent provides unique and advanced risk and reliability assessments to help clients minimize bottom-line losses and protect human health and safety.

How can Exponent help you identify and mitigate risks related to electrical hazards?

Exponent performs multidisciplinary technical, business interruption, and compliance-related risk and reliability assessments for diverse industries using industry-standard as well as innovative, situation-specific methods and tools to identify risk scenarios and their causes, predict the likelihood of the event occurring, and demonstrate the consequences.

Diligence in mitigating electrical risks is critical in every industry, from construction job sites, manufacturing lines, and power generation facilities to consumer products. Job site safety officers understand that unidentified electrical risks may lurk in many unsuspecting places — Exponent helps you take a proactive approach by conducting thorough job site and workplace safety assessments. Likewise, vulnerable components or corner-case use scenarios may lead to consumer electronics overheating or catching fire, and our experts are experienced in analyzing cluster data to help clients determine if a product recall should be issued. 

We help clients quantify business risks using preliminary hazard or risk analysis, failure modes and effects analysis, hazards and operability study, fault tree analysis, human error analysis, and others.

We supplement these methods with risk quantification using probabilistic and uncertainty principles and decision analysis to assist clients in identifying, quantifying, and mitigating risks to their operations, their employees, and the community.
