In all major incident scenarios, which range from Pandemics and Natural Disasters to Environmental and Oil Spill Disasters, Oikus supports in all segments of a resiliency system.  These segments are structured in the program management phase and the system reactive phase.  



Read about the core activities of Program Management below.



The key activities of Prevention are  Hazard Identification and Risk Management.


OIKUS understands the complexity of how operational risks intertwine with financial, process, and timeline risks as they relate to projects and assets.  Regardless of where the customer is in the timeline of their project, OIKUS can help manage operational risks. 


OIKUS works as early in the process as quantitative and qualitative risk identification, hazard assessment or conducting a business impact analysis within the context of the customer’s operations. 


OIKUS works with customers by helping to manage or advise on the strategic options, such as avoidance, prevention, reduction, sharing, or retention.  Then OIKUS  can develop, implement, review or evaluate our customer’s risk management plan.

The key activities of Preparedness are planning, training, and exercises.


OIKUS is able to update or produce contingency plans from scratch.Emergency Response Guides, Emergency Response Plans, Vessel Response Plans, Evacuation Plans, Hurricane Plans, Oil Spill Guides, and Oil Spill Plans are only a few of the Plans and Procedures we can develop.


OIKUS provides scalable training solutions to suit the customer’s operations. Training curricula include QHSE, SEMS - SASISOPA (Mexico) ISO 14,001 and 45001 Health and Safety Operations Management Sistems, Risk Management and Incident Investigation, IMO Oil Spill, Hazardous Waste Operations, and Incident Command System (ICS - following the FEMA standard) or the IPIECA Incident Management System.


OIKUS plans, produces, coordinates, executes, and evaluates simple or complex exercises.  We do Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 exercises for single or multiple responders. To do this, we follow industry standards such as IPIECA or PREP Guidelines.  To do this, MRM employs certified Master Exercise Planners.


OIKUS conducts capability reviews, which correlate the risks with the procedures and resources assigned to manage said risks.  Risk and incident specialists identify gaps and corrective actions for offshore or shore base operations.


OIKUS technicians can inspect a facility and identify preventive and corrective actions, necessary oil spill response resources for Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 oil spill scenarios. 


Furthermore, OIKUS is very well versed in IMO and IPIECA standards, particularly for deep offshore high-risk, high-consequence scenarios (as recently revised by the IPIECA Oil Spill Response Workgroup of 2015).  We assign consultants, who are used to standards of domestic and international oil spill equipment responders.
