Physical and Virtual Risks in Facilities Management
Integrating people, place, process and technology under the facilities management umbrella adds multiple layers of complexity to operational compliance or facility managers.
New compliance mandates and expectations leave facility managers in charge of managing growing risks and physical weaknesses. In this blog, we look at both physical and virtual risks in facilities management.
Health and Safety
First and foremost, facilities managers must prevent threats to human health and safety that can arise from poorly maintained life safety equipment, improper handling of hazardous materials and other workplace issues.
Company environmental health and safety policies and procedures represent a highly visible area of compliance risk and legal liability. A lack of safety awareness can result in severe penalties, accidents and death.
The health and safety of the built environment is a top priority for facilities management and includes waste management and the maintenance of infrastructure such as fire extinguishers to reduce incident risk. Identifying environmental risks and regularly maintaining infrastructure remains a prerequisite.
SHEQX’s solution transforms your company’s data into rich visuals for you to collect and organise, so you can focus on what matters to you. Stay in the know, spot trends as they happen and push your business further.
Organisations using smart building management services are responsible for any security weaknesses and need to ensure that their corporate data management – including integrated data and analytics – stay secured and protected to avoid data breaches.
Companies must ensure that their service providers are equipped to protect both physical and virtual corporate data assets with best practices and access control. Access to information is important to regulatory agencies to assess compliance and data governance. Standardising data related to compliance ensures that data remains accurate, consistent, and secured.
