Our Fatal Risks

Our Fatal Risks

Balfour Beatty has identified the ten fatal risks that most affect our day to day operations.

If we can design out these risks before they even arise, we can make our sites safer places to be.

Balfour Beatty has established ten working groups; one for each risk. These groups are tasked with finding ways to promote awareness, reduce exposure to and ultimately eliminate the risks for our employees, subcontractors and the communities in which we work.

Nothing that we do is so important that it cannot be done safely.


Our fatal risks are:

1. Buried Services 

6. Health

2. Catastrophic Events 

7. Lifting 

3. Driving 

8. People/Plant Interface

4. Electricity 

9. Traffic Management

5. Excavations 

10. Working at Height
