About > Method & Approach


Quality inspection analysis and reporting ensures the safety of your people, plant and the community.

This makes your life more difficult.

When inspection reporting is general and full of boilerplate.  Important actionable details can require your time and attention to find and can easily be missed leaving you and your facility potentially exposed.

When it’s done well, inspection analysisand reporting makes it clear what actions to take ensure the safety of your people, plant and the community.  This leaves you confident and available to tackle whatever is next.

It’s time to demand more.

The Atlas Cycle of Safety moves beyond the typical industry inspection analysis. The process leverages in-depth historical insights across your operation to engineer actionable future planning. The result? A safety-first, ready and reliable environment. You know where and when to deploy resources. Have the knowledge to make highly-informed, bullet-proof decisions. Your risks are reduced and resources are optimized. Is it time to move beyond status quo inspections?  Lets talk.

The Atlas Cycle of Safety

This integrated process embeds engineering insights into an actionable roadmap that ensures a final analysis that shifts your operation to safe, reliable and ready. Each step in the cycle is built on the detailed integrity of the previous step, which work in unison to build and predict an ongoing cycle of safety.

1. Consultation, Engineering and Planning

This process is used to gain knowledge of previous inspections, understand risks and consequences, identify historical bad actors, design information, damage mechanisms, and incorporate previous experience and knowledge.  With these insights, Atlas Engineering creates a detailed inspection plan using appropriate screening and/or volumetric methods to deliver a specified probability of detection (POD).

2. Inspector Roadmap for Impeccable On-site Execution

With the planning complete, the trained inspector now possesses an explicit roadmap to gather accurate, detailed, code-based determined data, which provides the basis for critical engineering analysis and recommendations.

3. Atlas Engineering

With a completed inspector roadmap in hand, engineering now has the ammunition needed to construct a comprehensive deliverable with detailed findings and code recommendations. 

4. Actionable Analysis

The final analysis is provided to clients and reviewed with Atlas Engineering.  The most important issues are clearly communicated and appropriate actions are identified.  This analysis is straight-forward, clear, direct and to the point and includes complete and easily accessible backup data as desired.

The result? Atlas clients are clear about which immediate and short term actions to take, how to prioritize future actions and time to spare to move on and tackle other important issues.
