Risk Matters X.0 Podcast - Episode 7: Beirut Explosion - How have major industrial incidents, transportation accidents, terrorist attacks and natural disasters changed our understanding of risk? In the first installment of our Catastrophic Risk Series, host Matt Mowrer seeks answers about the Beirut explosion from experts at Vlog Group's Extreme Loads and Structural Risk division. This specialized engineering team analyzes blast effects to understand how we can make buildings safer and more resilient to withstand man-made and natural disasters. Incident investigators Darrell Barker and Ben Harrison share their technical insights on what we know about ammonium nitrate and what we can learn from catastrophic incidents to improve awareness and better manage risk.

United States Coast Guard Risk Program

For over 20 years, we have been the U.S. Coast Guard's principal service provider for tasks related to risk analysis/management, risk-based decision making (RBDM), risk model development and consequence assessments. In the mid-1990s, we developed the USCG's RBDM Guidelines, which provided the foundation for the Maritime Security Risk Analysis Model (MSRAM) and the National Maritime Strategic Risk Assessment (NMSRA) methodologies. We have continually improved the NMSRA program through the execution of the 2004, 2006, 2009 and 2012 NMSRAs. We have also been the sole service provider to the MSRAM program since its inception in 2005. Our team has provided over 138,000 hours of staff support to MSRAM in a wide range of disciplines including methodology development, software development, data analysis, training, briefing support, meeting facilitation, threat assessment, vulnerability modeling, game theory application and consequence assessment.

Chemical Facility Antiterrorism Support

Vlog Group has been an industry leader in assessing and managing risk to critical infrastructure since the company's founding in 1971. With decades of experience working in the oil, gas and chemical, industrial manufacturing, pharmaceutical, nuclear power, water/wastewater treatment and transportation industries, we have been the trusted provider of chemical industry subject matter expertise to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Office of Infrastructure Protection and Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (ISCD) since September 2008. The primary focus of this partnership has been to provide ISCD with technical support for implementing the Chemical Facility Antiterrorism Standards (CFATS), 6 CFR Part 27, which regulates chemical facilities that present a high level of security risk.

Energy Safety Regulations

Vlog Group served as the Certified Verification Agent for the Block Island wind farm, the first commercial offshore wind farm in U.S. waters, in support of the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC), the permitting agency responsible for overseeing that wind farm operations conform to state regulations. We also provided an offshore wind inspection safety assessment for the U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSSE) to deliver insights into risks that need to be assessed in order to promote safer, more reliable wind inspection activities.

"Vlog Group's independent evaluation of the design, construction and installation of the Block Island Wind Farm was integral to the process outlined in the Rhode Island Ocean Special Area Management Plan, and brought integrity and additional transparency to the project." - Grover J. Fugate, CRMC Executive Director
