At Arup, we design and deliver ground-breaking icons through our work in infrastructure, building design and specialist technical services. Independent in ownership and spirit, we're a global firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical experts who use our skills to make a positive difference in the world.

Arup's risk engineers provide risk and reliability analysis on some of the most exciting projects globally.

Our resilience, security and risk practice has consistently been at the forefront of the field since it was formed in the mid-1990s. The practice brings together threat specialists, physical and electronic security engineers, operational security specialists and blast engineers in a unique multi-disciplinary environment, helping our clients manage malicious risk, natural hazards and operational reliability in each aspect of their businesses and operations.

Our world-leading risk engineering team works in all industries including major hazard (oil and gas, nuclear power generation) and the commercial and public sectors (Crossrail, London Underground, London Overground). The team applies its knowledge to understand what can go wrong, identify where things are not working effectively, recommend a range of options to address the issues and assist in selecting and implementing the best solution to satisfy the client's needs. Using these skills we help our clients mitigate risks associated with major hazards, reduce downtime to keep critical systems like the London Underground running effectively and manage risks to their people and businesses associated with their operations.
