Risk Reduction

We are New Zealand's leaders in end-to-end emergency management services.

We can provide individual services or fully integrated solutions, whether you need expert consultation in a specific area, compliance testing, staff/contractor training, or you're interested in contracting EMS to be your on-site emergency response team.

Risk Reduction

We are specialists in exposing risks posed by an operation, analysing them, and putting together services and systems to reduce these risks.


Does your business have the individual proficiencies and processes to handle an emergency? We can prepare you.


When an emergency occurs, we'll be there - protecting your people, property and productivity.


Efficient recovery is vital to minimising loss and ensuring production continuity.


Prevention is the best remedy. That’s why we specialise in risk reduction - minimising or eliminating the likelihood and magnitude of loss to your business.

We can expose the risks in your business, analyse them, and then put together services and systems to reduce these risks.

There is no other team in New Zealand with our depth and breadth of experience in risk reduction. We have also built an exceptional team around us, and have a ‘beyond best practise’ approach to training, with each of our operational staff holding a minimum high level of fire response, emergency medical and security qualifications. 

If EMS is contracted to be the dedicated emergency response team on your site, risk reduction is a constant focus, with activities including ongoing maintenance programmes and emergency equipment testing, emergency response drills, up-skilling training, site inductions, security checks and much more.

As consultants, we can be brought in to assist with a number of tasks – from providing a full risk audit to running specialty training courses. Risk reduction education and training is well proven to not just reduce risky behaviours, but also to improve productivity and accountability.
