Quantitative Risk Assessment Services in the UAE

Risk assessment has become an increasingly important tool in all areas of business.  During our recent transition from the quality management standard ISO 9001:2008 to the new ISO 9001:2015, one of the main areas of focus was the requirement for more formal risk analysis and increased ‘risk-based thinking’.  For most businesses, this is mainly a process of assessing risks (business, financial and operational) in a qualitative manner.  We evaluate the level of risks, the likely impacts and the opportunities for mitigation usually in the form of a Risk Register which ranks levels of risk based on impacts and likelihood.  Once high-risk elements have been identified, we can look at how these risks can be mitigated and controlled.

Whilst this is the acceptable practice for most businesses and projects, when it comes to large and complex projects with potentially risk of high impact on the project, a more specialized approach is required.  This is where our Quantitative Risk Assessment services in the UAE  can help businesses  make cost effective decisions and manage risks for the entire asset lifecycle

The Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) is an effective tool to help the understanding of exposure of risk to employees, the environment, company assets and its reputation.

QRA studies are typically required for production and processing facilities, high-pressure pipelines, and storage sites.

Quantitative Risk Assessment usually involves the use of very specialized software; for reliable results, QRA should be undertaken by experienced specialists who are able to ensure that the appropriate input data is used and assumptions agreed.

Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) is a consolidated approach to evaluating the risk level of an industrial system, which is traditionally based on the main technical failures leading to potential accident scenarios.
