Leading safety design services

Jørgen Pettersen
Kristiansand, Norway

As the Managing Partner for ERM's new entry to the Norwegian market, Safety Design A.S, I have almost 20 years' experience working in technical safety engineering for the Oil and Gas Sector in Norway and the North Sea.

The acquisition allows ERM to provide new and exciting "safety design" services within ERM's Global Risk business around active fire protection systems, technical safety engineering, risk, working environments and human factors to our new and existing clients. Joining ERM strengthens our position to offer these services within the Oil and Gas Sector in Norway and the North Sea, and provides us with additional opportunities to grow and diversify, both as an organization and as employees.

Currently, I am working closely with the ERM team in Norway, helping to build and define our safety design service offering, as well as contributing my experience to other ERM services including sustainability and environmental engineering. My goal is to expand safety design services to all our markets, and I am working with colleagues to achieve this aim.
