What is Risk Engineering?
At its core, risk engineering is a holistic and comprehensive strategy for managing risks before, during and after their occurrence with the aim of minimising their potential to damage a business, its people, and assets.
No two companies have the same risk profile, so risk engineering typically starts with an on-site risk assessment. Once the risk has been calculated and evaluated, these data provide vital information for underwriters to craft bespoke policies needed to mitigate the possible outcomes of company-specific hazards.
How risk engineering provides further value is as a method to identify practical measures companies can implement themselves to proactively reduce the threats they face, both in frequency and severity, before they happen. Because when it comes to risk, prevention is better than cure.
Who needs Risk Engineering?
For most businesses, avoiding risk is simply not an option. And as the global stage has shifted so that climate change, sustainability and cybersecurity are now firmly positioned in the limelight, companies face an ever-wider variety of risk challenges, placing pressure on businesses and insurers alike.
However, by building a corporate risk management strategy that includes risk engineering, these challenges come with opportunity. With a pre-emptive rather than reactive approach to risk, companies not only save time, money, hassle, and stress in operating their business, but are able to take bold action to thrive and develop to the next level while knowing they are protected.
Enabling enterprises to minimise damage and avoid significant losses, risk engineering also reduces the incidence and severity of insurance claims. This provides insured businesses further protection in defending insurance providers’ financial capability, so they are able to support their clients if and/or when they eventually need to claim.
