Managing Property and Business Interruption Risks

In an analysis of property and business interruption risks observations, interviews and company documents are used to identify the company’s property risks with the desired level of detail.

Property risks analysed include e.g. fire, breakage, process and chemical risks, as well as construction and installation risks. Business Interruption risks involve property and interdependence risks, and the related analysis involves a survey of the clients’ various risk areas.

The starting point of a cargo risk survey may be an individual cargo transport, a project-like transport entity or the customer’s worldwide export field.

A good starting point for a successful transportation is reliance on high-quality transport operators, but the cargo risks should be surveyed first so that the related requirements can be set accordingly. Cargo risk analysis also involves judicial issues such as transport and cargo liability. Cargo risk analyses are generally tailored according to the needs of the customer.

Managing Liability Risks

A liability risk involves the threat of the company or individual having to bear the consequences of damage or of breaching standards due to operations, a product, an act or neglect.

A liability risk survey involves the analysis, through interviews and review of documents, of the company’s key liability risks. The liability risk survey can cover all of the company’s liability risks or only those of agreed sectors.

Managing Occupational Health & Safety Risks

When assessing occupational safety, key occupational accident and health risks are identified. In addition, measures performed to manage the risks are inspected, and suggestions for improvements are presented.
