Safety and risk concerns are of paramount importance within a wide variety of complex engineering activities.

Managing risk and promoting safety is paramount in engineering practice. Today’s society is increasingly aware of hazards and risks, which accentuates the importance of safety assessment and management. It is crucial to engineering organisations that risk and safety are evaluated in a structured and calculated manner and managed to the best standards.

Our portfolio covers practical applications of safety methodologies and the latest techniques to effectively assess safety, risk and reliability in relation to design and the operations of products and services.
The collective expertise and experience of our consultants has been built into our training courses, enabling our courses to cover the latest industry thinking and real-life situations, generating immediate benefits for you.
