Our Values

CRA functions around three core values. They are a critical element of our corporate strategy, which influences the way we work and interact with our clients, colleagues and the environment.

Our Clients: central to our business

We are proud to work in partnership with some of the leading companies in their industries and aim to develop long-term relationships with our clients. Delivering high-quality work and providing proactive, value-for-money service is central to our strategy for growth. We are committed to being considered leaders.

Our People: our most important asset

We are a team of highly-skilled and committed experts providing safety and risk analysis to safety-critical industries. Our expertise, passion for problem solving and commitment to knowledge development drives everything we do.
The strength of our team is our integration of technical specialisms and our agility/flexibility to work with our clients to provide a solution commensurate with risk and safety requirements.

Our Culture & Environment: the heart of our expertise

CRA places great value on our people and the environment we work in. With offices and people across the UK we provide a flexible, diverse and family-friendly working environment and aim to support colleagues through teamwork, mentoring and training.
We seek to protect the environment for future generations and CRA’s operations are carried out with due regard to the potential environmental impact, as described in our Environmental Policy. Copies of the Environmental, Health & Safety and Quality policies are available on request – please email info@crarisk.com.

Our core values are Quality, Leadership and Integrity

Quality – At the core of everything we do
Leadership – We set the standard for ourselves and others to follow
Integrity – Through our actions, we are trusted by our clients, our staff, our partners and our suppliers

Our History

CRA was founded in November 2000. From its beginnings, providing Risk and Safety analysis support to the UK nuclear fleet it has grown into a diverse, multidisciplinary consultancy supporting developers, vendors, licensees and regulators in civil and defence projects. The number of clients we support has grown substantially, covering more industry sectors and numerous countries. In June 2020, CRA joined the Assystem corporate family, embarking on a new chapter in its development. Assystem is the second largest nuclear engineering company in the world, and as such has opened up a number of opportunities to CRA in the UK and internationally.

To this end CRA baselined our emissions in 2021 to provide a point against which emissions reduction can be measured. To continue our progress to achieving Net Zero, we have adopted a series of carbon reduction targets and we are adapting our organisation and work environments, in particular travel, use of remote meeting facilities and review of office facilities, in particular new facilities, taking into consideration energy efficiency measures.
