Risks and dangers aren’t always obvious

Maintaining compliance and mitigating risks starts with a full understanding of the regulations and dangers that apply to your site.

Successful shutdowns, turnarounds, and outages (STOs) avoid downtime and delays, but they require proper planning, communication, and attention to safety. Incidents create downtime, so making safety a top priority in every project phase makes a noticeable difference in the outcome.


Our team can ensure you meet all the permits, zoning, and regulations to keep your STOs on track. A proactive safety partner like SITEX provides value in every phase of your project, including:


Scoping – Identifying hazards that could cause delays.

Planning – Building safety into the project and addressing the timing of vital needs.

Execution – Ensuring the plan is followed and executing change management when plans change.

Start-Up – Closing the final tasks and verifying systems are safe to be brought back online.

Review – Evaluating KPIs, analyzing success of the project, and assessing takeaways for future STOs.
