The Riskmonitor Process
Schedule the work over an acceptable timeframe.Before starting any FRA program of significance we ensure we understand your portfolio of properties, their locations, their use and purpose, the occupants and legislation applicable. Then we agree our strategy and scope of work with you and, if required, involve the relevant authorities. Then we select assessors with the relevant competence and schedule the work over an acceptable timeframe.
Once we have a scope of work and timeframe for completion, our Operations Team get to work communicating your needs to the Assessor Team and scheduling the Fire Risk Assessments for completion.
Our competent Fire Risk Assessors conduct the Fire Risk Assessments using our, in-house developed, proprietary software RAMIS:Auditor. Once submitted, each FRA goes through a process of Quality Assurance review before being cleared for publication. Once published, you will receive a copy electronically and, if you’ve chosen to use RAMIS to manage your compliance, gain access to the data in the RAMIS:Compliance cloud platform
The Riskmonitor support team includes several decades of experience in this field and we love to help wherever we can. Engaging in a long term relationship with our team ensures you don’t leave your organisation exposed and can always turn to us for answers to your questions

As a council we have been using RAMIS for a number of years and have found it a very useful tool to monitor our fire risk assessments. We are able to show compliance levels across the schools and non-schools portfolio and have used the reports function to report compliance to senior leadership and target areas of concern. The staff at Riskmonitor are always very helpful in providing advice and development of the system and I understand that a major revision is coming out soon which I look forward to seeing it. Riskmonitor are a good Welsh company with a proactive approach to providing its customers with building compliance systems.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a Fire Risk Assessment?
A Fire Risk Assessment is a legal requirement. … It is every employer’s duty to identify fire risks and hazards in their premises and take appropriate action. In addition, if five or more people work at those premises or the business has a licence under enactment in force, the fire risk assessment must be a written record.
How much does a Fire Risk Assessment cost?
This will depend on the size, complexity and what you use your premises for. Our fire risk assessments start from as little as £180 for a common area of a block of flats and £350 for a workplace up to 1000sqm. Don’t be tempted to cut corners with your fire safety, only use competent professionals.
Who should carry out a Fire Risk Assessment?
Employers (and/or building owners or occupiers) must ensure fire safety risk assessments are carried out and kept up to date. The law does not specify who is allowed to carry out a fire risk assessment, it simply states that the person must be competent enough to complete a ‘suitable and sufficient’ assessment of that building.
What happens after the Fire Risk Assessment?
Once you have identified the risks, you can take appropriate action to control them. Consider whether you can avoid them altogether or, if this is not possible, how you can reduce the risks and manage them. Don’t forget, you will need to review the fire risk assessment at regular intervals, at least every 12 months.
