Risk & safety

What is the probability that a ship will collide with a bridge? Or how do we secure our buildings in a safe manner to protect against critical events?
Risk analyses are all about envisaging and describing unforeseen events and modelling the probabilities and consequences.

With more than 20 employees Rambøll Risk and Safety is the leading Danish provider of risk analysis and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) consultancy services. We manage and perform risk analysis and risk management from the early beginnings of a project until decommissioning. We carry out a wide range of more detailed risk studies as described below. Our clients cover a wide spectrum of service areas such as transport, infrastructure, buildings and environment.

Areas of expertise

Quantified Risk Analysis 

Quantified Risk Analysis (QRA) is dealing with a detailed modelling of event probabilities and consequences and covers the following

  • Bridges – ship collision, traffic load modelling, wind load modelling
  • Tunnels – fires and explosions, evacuation, emergency planning
  • Transport – railway safety (RAMS), Navigational risk, road and rail accidents
  • Energy – human safety, availability, reliability
  • Process plants – ATEX, Land use planning, Authority approval, SIL requirements
Project Risk Management

Project Risk Management is a systematic approach to identify and reduce risks related to project execution or to company daily production and covers project cost overrun, delays and quality as well as risk management of project execution – day to day based risk assessment and follow up. 

Ramboll provides RamRisk as a risk management tool for any type of project. With 24/7 online access, you can manage your risks anytime and anywhere. RamRisk is developed and hosted by Ramboll.

Mathematical modelling and advanced data analyses 

As an integrated part of a risk analysis – or as a separate service - the Risk and Safety department performs advanced data analyses and mathematical modelling tasks. The department uses both state-of –the-art commercial software tools (MatLab, @RISK, HUGIN etc.) and develops its own tools and models suited to solve the specific problem at hand.

Computational Fluid dynamics 

An Advanced Flow Engineering group within the department works exclusively with fluid dynamics and has experience on an international level in building and analysing CFD models. The works includes tasks in Denmark and abroad within e.g. wind environment, wind and wave loading, indoor ventilation, fires and explosions. Advanced computer simulation models (ANSYS, CFX) are applied in the work.
