Safehouse products and services deliver five core benefits:
- Reduce risk
- Make cost saving
- Extend asset life
- Increase production
- Improve welfare
A robust process safety management system is central to any well-managed installation. The highest safety standards don’t have to interrupt production. When hot work is necessary, our independently certified habitat system provides the control you need to mitigate risk and operate safely.
Our experienced technicians enhance safety through careful hazard evaluation and risk reduction strategies. They optimise workflow by improving the efficiency of your maintenance schedule and implement safeguards to ensure compliant operations.
Our cost-effective and certified SAFEHOUSE habitats ensure operational risk is ‘as low as reasonably practicable’ (ALARP). We have enabled more than 10 million hours of safe production in the last 15 years. Ask us how.
Stay compliant with the world’s first ATEX certified habitat
ATEX certified equipment is now a legal requirement in many countries. Our habitats are now a vital tool as API Standards state high quality repairs, such as welding, should be employed rather than cold applications. By isolating the area, our habitats effectively control the risk of hot work in hazardous environments.
Safehouse can influence project delivery
Carry out planned and emergent work in less time, with less risk. We suggest smart ways to phase and optimise hot work and SIMOPs. Our planning makes your maintenance schedule more efficient and makes sure human resources are always fully utilised, further optimising workflow and safe processes.
Process safety is the hallmark of a responsible organisation, and the highest standards don’t have to interrupt production. Our experienced technicians enhance safety through careful hazard evaluation and risk reduction strategies. They implement safeguards to keep installations and plants compliant.

Engineered solutions providing process safety peace of mind in complex projects
50 of our habitats were used in a complex maintenance project at a busy refinery to bolster process safety.
Challenging economic conditions demand increased production and increased profitability, without compromising safety. Safehouse ensures your team is safe, dry and comfortable in any temperature so they can work more efficiently, for longer. Our products and services increased staff productivity by 75% in the Middle East in 2015.
Safehouse products and services reduce shutdown times by enabling safe simultaneous operations. Our pressurised SAFEHOUSE habitats isolate work areas so hot work can be carried out in hazardous environments on live plants. Multiple SAFEHOUSE habitats allow staff to perform tasks in parallel.
Make production more profitable
In the last 13 years alone, Safehouse’s ATEX certified systems have helped to:
- Deliver more than 10 million safe production hours
- Produce an extra 610 million barrels of oil
- Unlock $500 million in cost savings
- Reduce shutdown days significantly
- Cut millions of dollars in asset management costs
With the right welding work habitat, you can innovate safely on any onshore or offshore installation. Even in the world’s harshest environments.
Boost team productivity
People do a better job (and can work longer) when you keep them safe, dry and comfortable in any temperature. This focus on welfare increased staff productivity by 75% in the Middle East last year alone. Our pressurised habitats isolate work areas, so hot work can be carried out in hazardous environments on live plants. Multiple habitats allow staff to perform tasks in parallel. This way, maintenance and shutdown times are reduced as a result of safe SIMOPs.

Flexible and reliable, our habitats offer cost saving solutions to challenging problems
Using the SAFEHOUSE habitat system allowed our customer to save a vast amount of time and money by avoiding the need to purge and dry dock an LPG tanker in order to complete a small repair.
Extend Asset Life
Safehouse products and services facilitate simultaneous operations and avoid the need for unplanned shutdowns.
American Petroleum Institute standards recommend rigorous maintenance when it is needed, rather than deferring repairs and opting for the false economies of patching, cold cutting and bolting. Fully certified SAFEHOUSE habitats ensure comprehensive, safe repairs take place on live sites. This quality long-lasting maintenance ensures long term structural integrity – the key to protecting assets in corrosive environments.
Our products and services secure the integrity of your installation and avoid inadvertently causing new operational integrity issues by delaying maintenance until shutdown.
We’ve helped organisations cut tens of millions of dollars in asset management costs.
Perform full repairs on live plants and producing assets
By using SAFEHOUSE ATEX certified habitat systems, you can carry out full repairs on live sites safely. Our hot work habitats secure the integrity of your offshore and onshore installations. Meaning, you do not need to risk further operational integrity issues by delaying maintenance until shutdown. By enabling SIMOPs, the use of our habitats can make savings by avoiding the need for unplanned shutdowns.
Protect your assets without impacting production
The overwhelming cost, value and quality advantage of hot work far outweigh the alternatives, such as cold cutting and bolting. Habitats allow the quality, long-lasting maintenance to be carried out on live plants. This ensures long term structural integrity – the key to protecting assets in corrosive environments.

The focus on asset integrity doesn’t have to wait until shutdown
Our bespoke habitat solutions helped an FPSO in Australia address asset integrity issues with full repairs when they were needed, rather than waiting for shutdown.
Shutdowns cost millions of dollars and have the greatest impact on production. Safehouse products and services help control project scope. We optimise tool time by enabling strategic maintenance and maximising work before and after shutdown.
Our expert planning keeps your people safe and boosts productivity. We offer reliable engineered solutions for a winning strategy to maximise up-time and increase productivity.
We’ve helped our customers optimise their productivity, generating an extra 60 million barrels of oil a year, but how is this possible without sacrificing safety?
Safely perform hot work and SIMOPs in hazardous areas
ATEX certified SAFEHOUSE habitat systems offer a cost effective way to perform hot work in potentially explosive areas, while mitigating risk to ALARP. Our habitats isolate the work area so that hot work can be carried out safely in hazardous zones and personnel can get on with work while operations continue. Organisations rely on our expert planning and engineering to keep their people safe and maintain their production levels.
Stop wasting your resource, maximise tool time
Maintenance schedules often hold the key to millions of dollars of untapped tool time. Typically, welders are unable to start work right away, waiting for other trades to complete their part or for equipment to shut down. Through early engagement and an integrated approach, we help organisations all over the world to make best use of their resources.
Achieving production targets has always been challenging. Safehouse offers reliable, engineered solutions to give you the ultimate competitive advantage and a winning strategy to maximise up-time.
