Risk Manager

What does it do?

The Risk Manager App assesses all potential risks in a building and organizes them into profiles. Responsible Persons and their teams can use these profiles to ensure systems and services function correctly. The app also guides handling traumatic situations and offers anti-terror advice. Additionally, it includes a feature for calling the Police in a "Run-Hide-Tell" situation, where emergency numbers may not be accessible due to the individual hiding and maintaining silence. All instructions and tools are presented in easy-to-understand terms.

Buttons and Profiles

A Profile is a collection of tasks that can be accessed by pressing a Button.

This Button is intended for the responsible person or their subordinates to use when necessary.

Once the Button is pressed, the Profile begins its process, self-altering based on the information received.
It can be as simple as checking if Fire Extinguishers are in place or as complex as reporting Hostile Reconnaissance activities. You can even create individual Profiles to help with the venue's day-to-day operations, such as ensuring that the toilets are clean or ordering a keg of beer for the bar. If you contact our helpdesk, we can create these Profiles for you for a small fee.

Packs of Profiles and Buttons that cover other aspects of your business are available for purchase. From Food Safety (with optional Internet of Things Sensors), COSHH, Health and Safety, Flooding Prevention and Warning, and HR.

Some examples of selectable Buttons.

Pre-Flight Checks.

Before boarding a ship or aeroplane, you would want to be sure that the captain has thoroughly checked all the safety systems and that everything is ready for departure. The same level of caution should be taken when opening a venue.
For example, the App prompts users to check if fire extinguishers are in place and up to date. Once confirmed, the App will log the information in the system. If needed, users can request a report to show inspectors or enquiries.
Multiple pre-flight profiles are available for users, and if a specific one is needed, the helpdesk can be contacted for assistance.

Performing a pre-flight check is crucial for various reasons. For instance, consider the importance of Fire Exits. In 2003, in Rhode Island, staff blocked the fire exits to stop people from entering the club without paying an admission fee. This led to a tragedy where 87 people were trapped inside the club and lost their lives. Another example is the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center. Some of the emergency exits inside the building were inaccessible, while others were locked. Hence, a pre-flight check is necessary to ensure safety and avoid such unfortunate incidents.


In an emergency, having pre-defined Profiles and Buttons can be extremely useful. These plans can be activated with just a touch, making knowing what needs to be done easier. The Profiles are designed to flow smoothly, keep a record, and facilitate communication. All users can provide input and feedback at any time.
During an incident, you can also access other Profiles that guide you on handling injuries or specific situations.


Hostile Reconnaissance is the term given to the information-gathering phase conducted by those individuals or groups with malicious intent. It is a vital component of the terrorist attack plan. However, terrorism may not be a site’s only threat, so the term ‘hostile’ can refer to any individual or group conducting reconnaissance.

CCTV is an essential tool for modern venues. It provides remote monitoring, situational awareness, and the ability to review incidents.
The Risk Manager App works with many of the systems used by the security industry and offers the following benefits:
The ability to request, download and secure vital video evidence from before and during an incident.
The ability to collect and share recordings of reconnaissance events with government agencies.
The ability to provide a live feed of any incident once authorized by a responsible person.
This feed is provided as a one-time web interface to the CCTV; the feed is closed on the restoration of the incident.

Trauma Training: In any incident, you might encounter a life-threatening situation. These commonly include bleeding. The App will give you the necessary skills and easy notes to follow that will describe what to do in the event of this situation. Use them as aide-memoir to keep yourself updated, and in an incident as a following process.

Rescuitation, In a similar way to Trauma Training, you might be exposed to someone suffering heart-stopping trauma. The App will provide guidelines as well as a following process.

In both situations, the App will keep up to date with the current method and will consider the protection afforded by Social Action, Heroism and Responsibility Act - 2005

The Emergency Call

Often one of the most challenging aspects of any inquiry is explaining the delay experienced by victims of the attendance by responders to an incident.
These delays take many forms.
However, making the first emergency service call is one of the most common. Who is responsible for making that call, are they credible enough to generate the correct response, and does the person taking the call have enough experience to ask the right questions?
Recent history has shown us that this is one of the most important aspects of any incident.

The Risk Manager App can allow an electronic call for an emergency response silently and quicker than a call using the traditional method of calling 999/911; this is vital.

Even when using the 999 networks, the Initsys Risk Manager App can provide vital information about the situation and its progression in the larger venue. Once triggered, the App will ask for additional information from the person instigating it, increasing responders' awareness.

One of the recommendations in some terrorist situations is to hide, making it very difficult to make a voice call; the Risk Manager App will open a listen-only channel that responders can use to improve their response further.

Having more than one person communicate with responders is also possible because the information is collated in real time and passed to response in time order, geolocated.
