The HCS staff has a broad range of skills and experience, enabling us to provide each client with a customized scope of work unique to their requirements.

Our vision is to dramatically transform the nature of plant operations, improve the effectiveness of the business, and enhance the quality of life of the people who staff it.

Common in all of our work is the application of our knowledge of human factors, plant operations, industry standards, effective practices, regulatory requirements, and lessons learned from active research with the ASM Consortium as well as from incidents and near-misses reported by the process industries.

The HCS staff would like to congratulate Ric Barreth on his recent retirement. Please contact info@applyHCS.com if you have current business needs for which Ric would have been the point of contact in the past.
