Why Us
Why US!Why US!

Risk and Safety Solutions was founded to support the University of California, one of the world's leading research institutions. Meeting the challenges presented by the institution's vast breadth of EH&S and Risk Management activities required a creative spirit and new ways of thinking. Today that spirit continues as we expand our expertise to new activities and a wider range of business needs in the public and private sector.
