in a nutshell about us

The preferred and trusted resource of Risk and Business Continuity Solutions

Collaborative Risk Applications (CRA) has developed unique risk monitoring and evaluating programmes that focus on physical risks. We have combined, in a unique way, the key risk factors of people, tools, machinery and the environment in which they operate to create excellent risk monitoring and evaluating programmes.
The diverse company structure of CRA puts us in the unique position to act as an EPCC Fire Engineering Company, able to manage the entire physical risk process from Risk Assessment through to System Design, Procurement, Fabrication, Installation and Commissioning.
CRA was founded in 2005 with the explicit aim of servicing the mining, smelting and related industries in assessing special risks of all kinds and to assist clients to eliminate or reduce the adverse impact of negative events.
CRA has an excellent track record in this regard and major industrial concerns have benefited from the expertise in the company.
