Product Description

This Report aims to provide practical guidance on ‘risk in structural engineering’ by describing the types of risks that may affect structural engineering work and by providing a decision making framework for risk, taking account of legal principles, available guidance and research. The scope is not limited to the design of new works; risks will occur throughout the life cycle of a building or structure; from concept through detailed design, construction, commissioning, operation, maintenance, dismantling, demolition and ultimately to disposal.

This guidance is intended for structural engineers in all roles and in every type and size of organisation, not just designers. It will assist structural engineers to make educated, considered and explicit risk management assessments on all projects from the small scale to the major and complex.
Engineers at all levels will find this Report relevant; from students and graduates learning how to manage risks to experienced engineers and technicians involved with any size project.

The Report covers all the risks which fall to structural engineers to manage. Principally this means risks to the health or safety of workers and the public, and risks to serious environmental damage, where there are both legal and moral obligations to keep risks low. Significant cost and programme risks arising from structural engineering decisions are also covered. Business risk in engineering projects is not included as it is not unique to structural engineering and is covered elsewhere.

The Report is intended to be international in scope. Eurocode terms have been avoided and, as legal duties vary between countries, the Report focuses on general good practice, with discussion of legal requirements in the UK and other selected countries.
