Our approach

Our approach

As part of the DE Group of companies, we have a unique perspective on risk management and the critical role that health and safety consultancy has to play. To the benefit of every client we work with, it is this singular, professional outlook that sets us apart.

Our business philosophy

By definition as a company, safety, innovation and ethical behaviour are at the heart of our business philosophy. These attributes characterise Derisk as a health and safety consultancy business and inform all of our actions and relationships, internally within our workforce and externally with clients, partners and stakeholders.

Safety is the key guiding principle of our wider corporate culture and we ensure that everyone who works with us is fully aligned with all of our safety management policies and protocols.

By continuously investing in our people, we seek to enable, inspire and enrich. In so doing, we are strengthening the foundations of a business that is dynamic, sustainable and progressive.

Combining innovation with ethical behaviour, we strive to think creatively, and to advise and guide our clients responsibly. We also seek wherever possible to work in a sustainable manner to help achieve significant reductions in our carbon footprint.


Derisk have an extremely pragmatic approach and constantly provide advice to managers and residents throughout the project which has resulted in positive feedback from both.

Our solid foundations

Health & safety

To be trusted by others with their health and safety management, we recognise that we must first lead by example. From planning to delivery, health and safety are key non-negotiables at every level of Derisk’s activities. Every member of our workforce, from work site to boardroom, undergoes regular health and safety training, supported by ongoing mentoring and workshops.

Our health and safety culture encompasses every aspect of our working practices, from risk evaluation and decision-making to instilling safer behaviours.

Our objective is to create a corporate culture where these behaviours become instinctive, reinforced by continuous safety instruction and support, and underpinned by regular site risk assessments and inspections. We also ensure that staff are issued with the appropriate PPE at all times, safeguarding their welfare every hour and minute of the working day.

This rigorous approach to health and safety is recognised by an array of industry accreditations and awards and reflected by our ISO 45001:2018 certification.
