An assessment is based on a questionnaire. The assessor chooses the questionnaire when creating an assessment. The questionnaire defines the type of the assessment, the questions asked, and the style of the PDF report produced.
RiskBase can be used to create any kind of assessment that fits our structure. Your organisation could create types called Fire Risk Assessment, Housing Inspection, Signage Audit, and Elephant Audit (sure, why not?). Types help with reporting and enforce limits:
Like the type, the questions asked are based on the questionnaire. The questions help build a list of actions and control measures (significant findings).
Actions identified during an assessment are turned into tasks. These tasks can be categorised, prioritised, and assigned to users in RiskBase.
Control Measures identify processes in place to ensure a hazard does not exist or has minimal impact; for example “The fire alarm is being correctly maintained and recorded.”
Each assessment is accompanied by a PDF report. During the assessment, a draft report is available to preview.
Once an assessment is approved, an approved report is created and saved; this report will never change. A live version of the report is also made available showing up-to-date information about the property and identified actions.
See Perform an Assessment to create an assessment.
Right click on an organisation or a property in the Explorer and select Assessments.
Accessing from the organisation will show assessments for all properties, whereas accessing from the property will show assessments for that property only. The page lists assessments on the right and a filter on the left.

The Significant Findings Register displays up-to-date information about a property’s actions and control measures from all assessments.
The register is only available when accessing a property’s assessment page (right clicking a property in the Explorer and selecting Assessments).
Only actions and control measures in approved assessments are included in the Significant Findings Register.
