Risk Engineering Society

For engineers focused on managing risks on job sites and in the community.

About the Risk Engineering Society

The Risk Engineering Society actively contributes to the effective management of risks in the workplace and in the community. We do this by collecting and disseminating information on all aspects of risk engineering, organising technical meetings and conferences and liasing with interested organisations.

We place special focus on risk issues associated with construction, design, safe plant operation and management.

We provide national leadership on the science, technology and philosophy of risk engineering and risk management. This focus contributes to safety, health, environmental protection and productivity for our society at large.

Our objectives are:

  • Promote risk engineering and science for the management of risks in commercial, industrial, environmental and infrastructure applications.
  • Communicate knowledge about risk engineering and risk management.
  • Promote collaboration between members, organisations and other societies.
  • Develop and extend the practical application of the science, technology and philosophy of risk engineering and risk management.
  • Provide expert advice to industry, the community and the government to promote excellence in the practice of risk engineering and risk management.
  • Promote education, training and research in all aspects of risk engineering and risk management.
