R2A Due Diligence Engineers for SFAIRP

SFAIRP for Engineering Due Diligence

R2A is a team of qualified and experienced due diligence engineers in Melbourne Australia who, since 1996, have provided completely independent due diligence advice so critical risk issues demonstrate SFAIRP (so far as is reasonably practicable).

Demonstrating SFAIRP ensures decisions are effective and meet safety and legal requirements.

Whether you require full due diligence or an expert assessment on your internal process, R2A will help you resolve the risk and safety issues that you cannot afford to go wrong, and then communicate the solutions clearly throughout your organisation.
If you want to align the laws of nature and man, ask an engineer.


R2A’s due diligence engineers independently assess and communicate critical risk issues to meet SFAIRP for projects, safety, operations and sustainability.

The idea that SFAIRP (so far as is reasonably practicable) is not equivalent to ALARP (as low as reasonably practicable) was discussed in Richard Robinson’s article in the January 2014 edition of Engineers Australia Magazine generates commentary to the effect that major organisations like Standards Australia, NOPSEMA and the UK Health & Safety Executive say that it is. The following review considers each briefly. This is an extract from the 2014 update of the R2A Text (Section 15.3).
