Risk & safety

Ramboll’s Risk & Safety consultancy is a leading provider of risk and safety analyses. Our analysis procedure describes and quantifies unforeseen events and models their probabilities and consequences — enabling us to mitigate risks and maximise safety throughout a project from instigation to decommissioning. We are experts in hazard management.

Risk management techniques

Ramboll's proven system of project risk management identifies, assesses and reduces the hazards at all stages of a project. We work with the client and project team to determine project risks relating to environmental factors, human safety, quality of work, time delays and additional costs. We eliminate high-risk items and monitor others throughout the project.

We use quantified risk analysis, which involves detailed modelling of event probabilities and consequences.

The technique covers the following areas:

  • Bridges — ship collision, traffic and wind load modelling
  • Tunnels — fires and explosions, evacuation, emergency planning
  • Transport — railway safety, navigational risk, road and rail accidents
  • Energy — human safety, availability, reliability
  • Process plants — explosives (ATEX directives), land-use planning, authority approval, safety integrity level (SIL) requirements

Computational expertise

Ramboll Risk & Safety carries out advanced data evaluation and innovative mathematical modelling, as part of a risk analysis or as a separate service. To complement our in-house systems, we use state-of–the-art commercial software tools such as MatLab, @RISK and HUGIN.

We have developed a database system to accompany the risk management process. It establishes a project’s current risk status, and monitors the significance of identified risks and risk-reduction measures.

Ramboll has also devised the computer application RiskSim, based on Monte Carlo simulation, to provide risk profiles and sensitivity analyses for varying input parameters.

Our international team is acclaimed for building and analysing computational fluid dynamics models, often using the advanced computer simulation models ANSYS and CFX. The work encompasses projects relating to wind environment, wind/wave loading, indoor ventilation, fire and explosion.


RamRisk is 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.

The Øresund Link

The Øresund Link connects the Danish capital Copenhagen with the city of Malmö in southern Sweden by a four lane motorway and a two track electrified railway for high speed (200 km/h) passenger services as well as freight trains.

Ramboll’s LNG expertise also includes economic market studies, technical concepts for import of LNG and layout studies

LNG terminal in Estonia

Port of Tallinn Ltd (AS Tallinna Sadam), the port authority in Estonia, is considering the possibility of placing a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) receiving terminal at a location in either Muuga Harbour or Paldiski South Harbour. The purpose of the LNG terminal is to receive liquefied natural gas from ships, store the liquid in storage tanks, vaporise the LNG, and then deliver the natural gas into a high pressure distribution pipeline or to a local major gas consumer.
