Currently Available Tools for the RMP 10 Foundations of Risk Management

The Ten Foundations of Risk Management
Structural engineers have the highest claims-to-revenue ratio among practitioners in the Architectural-Engineering (A/E) field. Structural engineers do not necessarily have more claims made against them. Rather, these claims tend to be higher per claim than claims for other types of engineers or architects.

The Foundations for Risk Management presented herein will be the basis for the tools and other content delivered at upcoming convocations and as tools provided free of charge to CASE members. These Foundations were developed by engineers in private practice to help engineering firms focus their practice on avoiding and minimizing risk.

The first five Foundations deal with the process of the engineering business and the last five deal with project management. The Ten Foundations for Risk Management:
