Luke was joined by two more members of staff to head up accounts and consultancy.


Operations Director, Devon joins uRisk to take over operations and enhance customer experience.



Our new website was launched, with a responsive design for mobile and tablet devices.


Our new online training website is born, allowing responsible people to train from anywhere in the world.


uRisk moves to a slightly bigger office due to increased growth and services.  But already looking to move again…


It’s been a busy year, and uRisk now has its own reporting app for engineer iPhones and iPads to improve reporting and report delivery times.



Dan and Keith join the team to expand the legionella and water hygiene services.
