Risk engineering contributes to health, safety, productivity and environmental protection for society at large. For engineers, the need to identify, monitor and mitigate project risks has been acknowledged throughout history, as failure to do so can lead to damage to reputations, financial loss, injury or death. Less well-acknowledged is the potential for risk engineers to identify and act on opportunities that can enhance project outcomes.
The following is a non-exhaustive summary of general risk principles applicable across application categories, engineering disciplines and industries. Links to further information will be added as REBOK develops:
