Risk Engineering

From our industrial experiences and global activities within the insurance sector, we are keenly aware of the challenges that the energy industry faces, both today and into the future.

Understanding your business

The Willis Towers Watson Risk Engineering discipline operates alongside our broking and other risk management related offerings to provide you with the best possible holistic understanding of the risks affecting your company.

Embedding Risk Engineering

At Willis Towers Watson, we take great pride in being one of the pioneering companies that helped form Risk Engineering, a discipline that has developed from within the insurance sector. Risk Engineering harnesses the skills and knowledge of engineers who have worked for many years in industry; from this base, they have developed a strong knowledge of hazard identification, together with a keen awareness of industry losses, their root causes and the most effective risk reduction solutions.

When Willis Towers Watson Risk Engineers engage with our clients, it can be in a number of different capacities, from assisting with the insurance placement to conducting a specific risk management task. These are all valuable interactions; however, we believe that far greater value can be achieved by engaging with our engineers in a strategic manner, as this approach enables us to provide more detailed and comprehensive advice across your entire risk landscape, through a deeper understanding of your specific issues and a better appreciation of company interdependencies.

By prioritising and optimising activities, we increase the potential for your principle risk management goals to be met, allowing you to focus more on company growth strategies. That's why embedding Willis Towers Watson Risk Engineering should be a priority for all companies in the natural resources industries.
