TÜV SÜD has issued a global study for Lloyds Register Foundation focusing on ‘How do we ensure the future safety of the complex critical infrastructure on which modern society relies?’. This report summarises a six-month period of study in 2021 on the subject of safety of critical infrastructure covering the energy sector (conventional and green) and the transport sector (maritime, road and rail). Views were gathered from industry actors involved in the delivery, ownership, operation and maintenance of infrastructure across the UK, Europe and Middle East, Asia and Australasia and, United States of America and Canada.


Why download the Report?

This study on the safety of critical infrastructure was commissioned by Lloyd’s Register Foundation and conducted by TÜV SÜD including a team of academics from the University of Cambridge.

It addresses questions including:

  • What is the state of current practice for the management and maintenance of infrastructure to enable a safe outcome for society?
  • What does future safety practice need to look like for the management and maintenance of infrastructure?
  • What gaps are there in the provision of safe infrastructure for society and what opportunities are there to apply existing techniques from within and external to the sector?
  • What evidence is there for the effectiveness of existing and future practice for the management and maintenance of infrastructure?

The report will be of interest to anyone involved in infrastructure management and maintenance, particularly relating to energy and transport. You will find information about the approach to conducting the study, research findings and industry evidence and insights.
