Protecting Montana's Vital Assets & Resources

Property Inspections

The Risk Management & Tort Defense Division (RMTD) provides inspection services for state and university buildings and properties to identify hazards or perils that may give rise to property losses. Inspections are conducted by RMTD loss prevention staff and insurance consultants.

Locations are selected quarterly for inspections with priority given to those buildings having high replacement cost values, recent claim histories, unique occupancies, and/or questionable loss management practices. However, any building may be selected at the request of an agency as resources allow.

After completing an inspection RMTD provides a detailed Property Loss Prevention report for each location which identifies hazards and perils and provides recommendations to mitigate potential losses. Recommendations are advisory. Written responses are required from the agency. Contact our loss prevention staff for additional information.
