Integrate risk control and safety in all aspects of your projects


This sector includes all engineering structures (bridges, tunnels, dams and national, departmental or municipal roads), all these infrastructures face many challenges:

  • - On the one hand, the need to consider the ageing of structures (upkeep, maintenance – major issues in France and in Europe). For this, it is important to monitor the ageing to limit the risk of accidents.
    - On the other hand, construction involves new materials and new processes which require optimal safety management. Of the infrastructures required by 2050 to deal with the demographic increase in global population and expanding urban development, only 25% of it currently exists.

The infrastructure sector is a true driver of growth and global economic prosperity. 
Technologies and materials are changing; nonetheless, the safety of property and people should remain the major issue for those involved in the sector, and Apave and its experts can help you manage your everyday risks.

Your challenges related

to risk management

Your challenges related to human risks

  • The safety of workers on construction sites and preventing co-activity risks
  • Training and qualifying teams to meet regulatory, technical and technological developments

  Your challenges related to technical risks

  • The safety of infrastructures
  • Real-time detection of structural failures


Your challenges related to environmental risks

  • Waste management, reduced atmospheric emissions
  • Controlling environmental impact: avoiding, reducing and offsetting effects on the natural environment

Your challenges related to Digital and Technological risks

  • Innovations to enhance reliability and monitor projects
  • Embedded solutions and real-time data transmission
  • Data security


Controlling all these risks will enable you to develop and guarantee the greatest reliability and sustainability of your structures, particularly using predictive models and digital modelling (BIM) and through more ecologically virtuous systems.
