Environment, health and safety
Our services give our clients control over their own safety situation. They provide this control through, amongst other things, a series of much sought-after solutions that have repeatedly proven their worth in many organisations. The three specific Riskonet assessment solutions described below offer extremely targeted support.
Pre Acquisition Risk Assesment
One specific assessment form is known as a Pre-Acquisition Risk Assessment (PARA). In it, Riskonet advises clients on the current safety of objects they are thinking of acquiring and the risks associated with them. A PARA can, for example, be a useful and integral part of a broader due diligence investigation on a piece of real estate that a client might be thinking of acquiring. Our clients tell us that the impression they get of an asset (in a financial, legal and usage context) is not considered complete without this technical assessment, which pays specific attention to material safety.
Pre Construction Risk Assessment
The Pre-Construction Risk Assessment (PCRA) is a comparable service that is specifically aimed at clients who are about to start a building project or acquire one. Using this product, Riskonet experts can draw a complete picture of everything which might affect safety in a new building or development project. The PCRA enables Riskonet to support you in aligning a new-build investment with your risk profile and strategy, while considering legislation, regulations and insurers’ requirements.
Gap Assessment Asset Safety
Companies prefer to maintain autonomous control over the safety and continuity of their business processes. The Gap Assessment Asset Safety model (GAAS), which we developed ourselves, enables us to offer an integrated approach to material safety on location. The GAAS focuses on current legislation and regulations, business continuity and the insurability of the assets. With it, we can identify possible shortcomings and flag improvement opportunities, such as personal and evacuation safety, prevention and suppression.
International advisory network
Collaboration with NFPA
Riskonet also actively helps to develop risk-management knowledge and expertise. We are, for example, the European partner of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), an American non-profit organisation that uses scientific research, guidelines and education to reduce the negative effects of fire and other hazards. With almost 80 000 members, the NFPA is the world’s largest fire safety organisation and many companies and insurers follow its guidelines.
Our NFPA seminars
We can support you with advice and action in the area of safety and risk management. And our offering is extensive. It encompasses, for example, the dissemination of knowledge and training courses, including those pertaining to the important guidelines of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
