So, your Fire Risk Assessment has been completed. The company you used and the assessor that visited your site was competent and did a great job. That is one less thing to worry about, this building is compliant for now.
You know your headache doesn’t stop there; it has only really started.
On the rare occasion an assessment is carried out there may be absolutely nothing to do, no remedial tasks to ensure that the property is brought up to the required standard. The assessor has wandered around and written in the report that this building is perfect. If only all risk assessments were so easy!
99% of the time, you now have a list of remedial tasks that have been identified but now need to be actioned.
Some of those tasks you will pass to the building manager but others you will need specialist contractors to come in and rectify.
How will you manage all these tasks?
How will you know they have been done, when and by whom?
Who is accountable and can you manage that workload?
On average a good risk assessment identifies on average 18 remedial actions that need to be taken to ensure the safety of the occupants and the building.
If you manage 10 buildings that is 180 tasks, 100 that’s 1800 and you can do the maths for whatever you manage, but it is not unusual for some of our large, multi sited customers to be managing in excess of 10,000 tasks and that is just for Fire.
What about Legionella, Asbestos, Gas, Electric, the list keeps growing.
It’s enough to give the most organised portfolio manager a migraine and have to lie down in a darkened room.
Are you managing all this on spreadsheets?
Is your current solution a mix and match of various products that don’t talk to each other?
A great compliance software solution, like RAMIS, will manage all that for you.
