Facilities management often involves the administration of a mix of buildings and grounds that vary in design, age, quality and purpose
The diversity of building types and their surrounds presents a challenge because their management may require a range of different contractors to be engaged. Australian WHS legislation requires organisations to provide a safe work environment for all workers (including contractors and suppliers).
Managing the Contractors and Suppliers across different sites and facilities
Contractor management is the process of managing the contractors and suppliers that are engaged to work at your different facilities ranging from cleaning, construction, gardening through to general maintenance. Having a consistent approach for this function across various sites and facility types can prove difficult.
How do you ensure that the contractors you engage meet the minimum criteria regarding security checks, qualifications and insurances? Do currently engaged contractors remain compliant with these minimum requirements? Do you have an effective induction process? Is it specific for the location they will be attending?
Meeting these contractor management requirements can be particularly challenging for facilities management companies due to number of sites under management, as well as the many different types of contractors engaged.
Contractors are pre-qualified, inducted and signed in or out of a particular facility
BNG Conserve™ can assist ‘Facility Managers’ to meet the above contractor compliance challenges by requesting, collecting, validating, storing and maintaining all prequalification information and documents as per the site’s or organisation’s unique and specific criteria. This information and documentation is available to authorised representatives to access and review online.
Our Specialist Support Team will work with contractors and suppliers to ensure their prequalification and accreditation is simple and efficient with minimal effort or resources from facilities management.
Conserve™ will also send automatic email reminders to contractors to refresh these documents when they are approaching expiry, assisting them in their ongoing compliance with the site’s minimum criteria.
Site Specific Inductions can be easily and efficiently carried out via the Conserve™ App from any mobile device. This means that contractors and suppliers can be inducted and ‘signed in’ onsite on arrival and ‘signed out’ on leaving.
