A successful facilities services manager has set up a software company that helps FM businesses comply with health and safety law. Having spent 20 years in the FM sector, Tim Chadwick (pictured) has recently utilised his extensive skillset to develop CRAMS, a software application that helps FM users create real-time risk assessments with integrated competency training.
Tim Chadwick said: “Managing health and safety effectively is always challenging, particularly with the vast numbers of employees in the FM sector and the constant need for induction and competency training for new starters. CRAMS allows employees’ competencies to be evaluated immediately, based on the risk assessment which has been specifically applied to the job position. The employee is then automatically enrolled on the relevant eLearning course where the competency deficiency has been identified. More specifically it can be utilised in the hard and soft services areas, with hard services holding the highest potential for serious injury due to the types of work that the employees are involved in.”
