A ship in harbour is safe - but that is not what ships are built for.

Our services to the transport sector

Economic development puts increasing demands on the transport sector. Sustainable development means that increases in capability and capacity must be achieved in an affordable and environmentally conscious manner. Underpinning all this is the requirement that transport is delivered safely and reliably.

These tensions are fraught with uncertainty and risk. Balancing them can be a challenge, especially when the organisational and political contexts are taken into account and where there is often a myriad of stakeholders with differing concerns who must be engaged with and satisfied.

Risk Solutions rises to the challenge through our in-depth understanding of the issues faced by our transport sector clients. Our case study examples illustrate the breadth of our experience which includes:

  • Benchmarking business processes and costs to improve efficiency 
  • Researching good practice from other industries and countries 
  • Developing guidance and standards to improve business performance 
  • Designing safety and competence management systems, and training staff in their use 
  • Developing decision support tools, particularly in the area of whole life asset management 
  • Appraisal of options and evaluating policies and initiatives
  • Designing incentives regimes to improve performance whilst maintaining a light regulatory touch.

Central to our success is our ability to develop solutions that allow organisations to manage risk efficiently whilst providing assurance to staff and other stakeholders. Our approach to a problem is always systematic, highly consultative and evidence-based.
