Property Risk Surveys

Over the past 6 months, property risk surveys have become even more integral in securing insurance coverage and appropriate terms.

A property risk survey enables property owners to demonstrate risk management provisions and provide insurance brokers and insurance companies with a level of assurance that risk exposures are appropriately managed.

How a property risk survey can help:

A property risk survey is a structured assessment of risk that is aligned with an internationally recognised framework called the COPE structure.

The COPE structure has a particular focus on the following elements:

  • Construction of the property;
  • Occupancy activities and operations;
  • Protection including fire and security; and
  • Exposure including neighbouring businesses, location and environmental hazards

A property risk survey will provide a holistic overview of the property and business operations in order to showcase good risk management practices and identify opportunities for improvement.

Our approach:

We keep the process for conducting a property risk survey simple by applying the following steps:

  • Arrange a date and time that suits you for a site visit at the business / property location
  • Request for documentation in the lead up to the site visit, this can be reviewed remotely and assists with informing the site visit
  • Conduct the survey during the site visit which typically takes 2-3 hours and involves citing documentation, citing and discussing risk controls, walkthrough of the business facilities and taking photos.
  • Produce a risk survey report based on the outcomes of the documentation review and site visit.

We also provide clients with the advise and support they need to address any identified opportunities for improvement.
