EI’s long history of providing expert safety consulting services is supplemented by our engineering staff to support specific project needs. For example, in many manufacturing settings and several construction situations, engineering seals may be required on safety-related drawings, such as Life Safety or NFPA Hazardous Area Classifications drawings. EI can support the assessment of other NFPA code requirements or deviations, providing expert assessment, including Arc Flash assessments and requirements.
Further, our long-term and broad experience in manufacturing facilities provides a basis for our engineers to support physical improvements to enhance employee safety and health.
Finally, our engineering background in understanding various manufacturing processes helps our engineers tackle various Process Safety issues with technical and practical astuteness. This is often evident in the Process Hazard Analysis efforts in determining the appropriate assessment method, in reading and breaking-down P&IDs, and supporting the evaluation of multiple events or human influences. All this makes our efforts to lead PHAs more effective.
Several safety standards require the use of a qualified engineer. EI is pleased to offer such services which include:
- Scaffold requirements such as design of tube and coupler scaffold greater than 125 feet
- Design for protective systems and structural ramps in excavation practices
- Lift slab construction design
- Fall Protection systems analysis

As usual, The EI Group did a wonderful job. The technician that was here was very friendly and professional. Thank you so much for a job well done!
OSHA makes it clear at 1910.146(d)(5)(iii) that when testing the atmosphere in a permit-required confined space, testers should check oxygen first, followed by flammables, and finally, toxic gases and vapors. This does not appear to make sense since atmospheric monitors read all gases simultaneously.
