Risk management

Risk management is a strategic tool for increasing value creation in a company. It is about identifying, estimating and controlling costs. The process also involves planning, analysing and evaluating risk. This is what organizations need, and according to the new ISO standards, it should also be introduced to achieve the company's purpose and goals.

One thing that unites all DNV employees, irrespective of department or business area, is the management of risk.

To assess what is safe, or safe enough, we must understand risk. In other words, that means both the probability that something may fail, and the consequence of that failure. Within this area, we are in possession of broad experience from our core competence in the energy and maritime areas.
