SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
More than ever, businesses are facing increasing challenges in how they manage risks and transparency in their supply chain and minimise the impact of vulnerabilities and disruptions.
SafeContractor gives organisations the peace of mind that their supply chain is secure and resilient.
Contractors and suppliers undertake an annual assessment to demonstrate that they meet the necessary requirements around health and safety, insurances, environmental policies, modern slavery, diversity, equality, financial stability and more.

Why Choose Alcumus SafeContractor For Supply Chain Management
It’s estimated that as much as 80% of an organisations spend and risk comes from its supply chain. Manual solutions like Excel or paper-based documents are subject to user error and lack the ability to collaborate effectively. By using SafeContractor accredited members, you can ensure complete visibility of the contractors and suppliers that you use through the client portal.
Dashboards give you an instant view of your existing supply chain, and furthermore you can access new contractors and suppliers from the 33,000 approved members.
This means you will have a full audit trail of compliance should the HSE visit, and you can make and share notes with your colleague’s post-project for continuous improvement.
Verdantix suggest that recordable safety incident rates are typically three times higher for contractors compared with permanent staff. Therefore, robust risk mitigation is needed to protect your organisation.
As a founding member of Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP), SafeContractor has been providing robust risk mitigation for 20 years with many of the largest organisations in the UK.
SafeContractor goes beyond the core SSIP criteria to assess not only what a contractor does, but also how they do it – allowing your organisation to make an informed decision about the level of risk. No other provider offers this.
Importantly all SafeContractor members are accredited to the same benchmark of compliance to be as clear and simple as possible. Many other schemes offer different tiers (gold, silver, bronze, premier, premium etc) which can be confusing as to what level of compliance has been approved.
Each client organisation will have its own motivations for joining SafeContractor, increasingly organisations need to demonstrate that their supply chains are free from modern slavery, have environmental policies such net zero, promote diversity, anti-bribery, data privacy etc. The SafeContractor accreditation offers this as standard, many other SSIP providers do not.
Our team takes the hard work out of chasing suppliers for documents, PQQs and insurances. Typically, this free’s up around 1200 hours of admin per year for your organisation, so you can focus on more pressing areas of your Health and Safety and/or Procurement plans.
As the leading community in the UK, on average 50% of contractor lists supplied are already SafeContractor members. This means instant visibility into your supply chain, and the onboarding process for the remaining 50% is very straight forward.
Your dedicated customer success team will help you on your compliance journey. The team are on hand to provide regular reviews, training and awareness, communications and events, support with onboarding, and chase up contractors and suppliers on your behalf.
Alcumus SafeContractor offers unrivalled 1-2-1 support for contractors and suppliers. With the largest team of in-house auditors, contractors and suppliers get a named contact they can return to year after year. Other providers do not have this option.
The contractor questionnaire is dynamic and risk-based, so contractors only answer questions that are relevant to them. Advice and templates are available to ensure RAMS and H&S polices meet the client expectations.
There is also a whole host of discounts and benefits to contractors such as free health and safety advice and discounts on PPE, materials, fuel, insurance and more.
Many SSIP providers claim to be a leader – but Alcumus SafeContractor is the only company in the UK to be independently awarded ‘leader’ status for contractor management by independent analyst firm Verdantix.
SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
Protecting your organisation with accurate contractor information
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) advise that anyone engaging contractors has health and safety responsibilities, both for the contractors and anyone else that could be affected by their activities. This also applies when a contractor employs subcontractors.
Alcumus SafeContractor provides robust, accurate, information so that you can make informed decisions about your tier one contractors, as well as subcontractors in tier two and three. Demonstrate compliance of your existing supply chain, and instantly source new contractors for your projects without delay.
