INTRODUCTION


Bellrock Property and Facilities Management Ltd (Bellrock) is a technology-enabled business in the property and facilities management services sector. They provide specialist risk focussed workplace and property management services to a wide range of complex and sophisticated clients throughout the UK.

Bellrock’s deep rooted health and safety culture has enabled it to celebrate the milestone of one million hours without a time lost incident. This is against a backdrop of doubling its turnover since joining Alcumus SafeContractor in 2018, one of the few Facilities Management firms to grow through the pandemic, and it expects this growth to continue.

Like most forward looking companies, Bellrock has set its sights on becoming a more sustainable business. Delivering social value and corporate social responsibility is a fundamental part of this; SafeContractor will be with them every step of the way to prequalify suppliers and enable Bellrock to focus on the areas that they do best.
 

CHALLENGE


Bellrock has been growing rapidly, both holistically and through acquisition. To achieve this, they needed a consistent approach to ensure they only work with suppliers who are aligned with their culture of compliance. Prior to joining SafeContractor, Bellrock aligned Health and Safety onboarding and Pas91, but as a small team, this was not as robust as it could be. With new clients, expanding sites and increasing scope for the team, greater due diligence was needed to mitigate risk.

They were seeking a solution that would add support and specialised experience to their team, offering greater visibility of their supply chain to ensure that they were compliant throughout. Furthermore, to only hire contractors that had been pre-approved to the same benchmark of health and safety for the work that they needed.

We were looking for a provider with expertise that could help us to mitigate risk in our supply chain. SafeContractor was a consistent name in the Safety Schemes and Procurement (SSIP) world, with a good reputation. Once we met the SafeContractor team, they stood out against the competition and really set the standard for what good looks like.

Beyond Health and Safety, we are committed to being a sustainable business and delivering social value at both a local and national level. We aligned to Pas91, but our small team found ourselves in a similar position as before – chasing suppliers for modern slavery statements, environmental policies etc. We were thrilled when SafeContractor made this assessment part of their core product offering – no other SSIP provider offered this.

SOLUTION


In 2018, Bellrock decided to partner with SafeContractor to improve the day-to-day management of its clients, while maintaining the highest level of health and safety.

Deborah Quinn, Head of Supply Chain, Bellrock, commented:

As the leading UK Health and Safety accreditation, SafeContractor provides peace of mind that contractors are pre-approved with up-to-date insurance, as well as other regulated areas such as GDPR, modern slavery, antibribery and more. The platform offers an easy-to-use online portal which lists all existing contractors in one easy-to-access location.

OUTCOME


The SafeContractor portal has reduced the admin burden of managing contractors. This enables the team to maintain the highest standards in their supply chain without unnecessary bureaucracy.

To fuel their growth, Bellrock can source reliable, accredited contractors. This provides confidence that the people they work with have demonstrated their commitment to health, safety and sustainability issues.

Bellrock’s deep rooted health and safety culture has enabled it to celebrate the milestone of one million hours without a time lost incident. It was one of the few Facilities Management firms to grow through the pandemic. This is in part due to the trust their clients have in them, which can be attributed to its safety culture and company values. The immediate focus for the future will be on helping clients with the safe reoccupation of facilities post COVID-19.
