I have known Mr. Kavanaugh since 2001 in a professional context in which his company has supplied us with risk management assessment services of our district facilities. In my experience, Mr. Kavanaugh has provided a professional level of service, responding to our needs in a timely and proactive manner.  Additionally, he has always been available on short notice to play a consultative role in emergent or challenging issues. His manner is friendly, supportive, collegial and professional and I have no hesitation in recommending both Alan and Risk Management Service.

Since June of 2004, I have worked in the Facilities Department of the Coast Mountains School District.  My duties include acting as the contact person for Alan and attending any inspections conducted by him. I have always found Alan to be prompt and professional.  Alan is thorough in his inspections and always makes his findings clear and easy to understand.  Inspection reports from Alan are also clear and concise in their presentation and any questions that I have had have promptly taken care of. Working with Alan has been a pleasure and I have no reservations in recommending their services.

The City of Prince George has had a great working relationship with Mr. Alan Kavanaugh for the past number of years. Al is very thorough in his work and he takes the time to make sure we are doing things properly. This past summer Al put on a one-day clinic for our maintenance crews on playground inspections, which was very well attended and enjoyed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Al and his services to anyone, his combination of knowledge and customer service is second to none.
