Clients may not always understand the safety and security implications of their project, but they must understand that today’s decisions may have an impact for years to come. So many variables need to be analyzed when working in safety and security.
Hazards may be accidental, natural, criminal or terrorist in nature. In fact, anything that can affect transport systems should be treated as a potential threat, be analyzed, and acted upon if needed.

With our knowledge and experience, our teams at WSP provide an approach where safety, security, and emergency management meet to mitigate all potential hazards.
