Risk Engineering

Our aim is to save you money by preventing risks, rather than simply transferring the risk.

Ensuring your business assets are adequately insured is good risk management. Preventing loss from happening is even better.

Unexpected insured losses, be it from fire, flood, cyclone or machinery breakdown, is a fact of life. How prepared are you for unexpected losses, and how quickly can you respond and begin to trade again?

Our risk engineers are experts in identifying, preventing and mitigating your property liability and environmental risks, and helping you understand the true financial impacts to your business. Our aim is to save you money by preventing risks, rather than simply transferring the risk.

We offer a full range of risk engineering services including:

  • Property Damage (PD) and Business Interruption (BI) insurance surveys for underwriting information
  • Operational and construction surveys
  • Risk management program coordination
  • Major project risk reviews
  • Identification of risk improvement areas
  • Evaluation of loss scenarios and the Estimated Maximum Loss (EML)
  • Technical review of prototypical technology from an insurance and business risk perspective
  • Assistance with respect to the transfer of projects from the construction phase to the operation phase
  • Advice regarding asset valuations
  • Risk management training via seminars and workshops

It’s our business to work with you to improve your organisations’ risk profile, to optimise your insurance coverage, and represent your business correctly to the insurers.
