Risk management

We develop robust structures to identify and manage risks quickly, safely and effectively

Early assessment of possible risks helps clients develop comprehensive mitigation plans to ensure effective delivery of services. 

Our track record

We have an exemplary health and safety track record. In over 30 years of operations we have had zero incidences of serious harm and all minor issues are dealt with promptly and successfully.

This track record has been maintained across a workforce of up to 120 staff and associates, including a substantial amount of work carried out in fragile and conflict-affected areas.

In all our work, the safety of all our people, whether they be employees or sub-contractors, is our primary concern.

No activity is attempted or undertaken unless it can be done without compromising individuals’ safety.

We operate a Risk Management Operations Cell out of Dubai, which monitors real-time risk and supports programme implementation across the world.

We pride ourselves on providing work environments where everyone is actively encouraged to create and maintain a safe workplace.
