In infrastructure projects, there's a lack of clear application models in the governmental institutions to implement a national approach for risk management, in addition to the poor knowledge related to risk management sciences. Consequently, the study recommended adapting a comprehensive program to qualify society and companies in the field of risk management and protection and following the national risk management approach in infrastructure projects.
