How Alcumus SafeContractor can help FM organisations

Health & safety compliance

Facilities management companies bear the responsibility for the health and safety of both internal employees and onsite contractors. They need to be fully aware of the health and safety risks in the properties and environments they manage, as well as the competence of the contractors employed to work there.

Supply chain compliance and visibility

Supply chain compliance and visibility are essential for meeting regulatory requirements, mitigating risks, upholding ethical standards, and improving efficiency within organisations, including facilities management businesses. Real-time monitoring of contractor compliance and the ability to identify potential risks are indispensable.

Climate change and social value initiatives

As global efforts to improve ESG intensify, facilities management organisations are taking substantial steps to reduce their carbon footprint and improve their impact on society. This includes ambitious goals of cutting emissions by 68% by 2030, and a requirement to source local contractors and suppliers while evidencing a responsible and ethical supply chain.

Our approach to FM contractor management

Our proportionate stance

At SafeContractor, we understand the unique challenges faced by contractors of all sizes, which is why we take a proportionate approach to our assessments. This means our evaluation process is scaled to fit the size and complexity of the contractor’s business, ensuring it’s both fair and manageable. Despite this proportionate approach, we maintain rigorous standards to ensure all contractors are compliant and competent to undertake work.
