Seismic hazard is a subject that can be analysed at many levels of detail. For some purposes, all that is needed is to know whether hazard is low, medium or high. Depending on the magnitude and importance of any engineering project, different scales of detail in quantifying the hazard are appropriate. BGS is capable of handling hazard jobs of any size, from short desk studies to major multidisciplinary projects.
We recognise the importance of quality assurance, and how it can be applied to scientific research. Work is completed to the standards set out in BS EN ISO 9001:2000 (and any specified by the customer) with the goal of producing a high quality, 'fit-for-purpose' end product. The BGS has been awarded BS EN ISO 9001:2000 accreditation.
