As part of its continued commitment to helping make easier work of complex health and safety legislation, Bureau Veritas has launched a brand new package enabling customers to combine inspections in order to optimise efficiencies and, in turn, reduce costs.
Now available nationwide, the Comply in One offering means customers can benefit from combined inspections nationally across multi-site operations in order to ensure economies of scale along with the same level of technical excellence.
Comply in One works whereby the Bureau Veritas team will work closely with a client to identify all areas of their compliance needs that are suitable for a combined approach and deliver the according solution. In the case where clients have various deadlines for services and locations, the team can even bring compliance inspections in line, or bend and flex delivery to reflect the risk profiles.
For fast-moving businesses the commercial benefits include a typical 20%-30% cost saving compared to standalone inspections, reduced disruption, detailed holistic reporting helping to simplify analysis and the peace of mind afforded by full compliance in a shorter time.
This is, of course, supported with the same best-in-class technical excellence. Ahead of the launch, Bureau Veritas invested heavily in upskilling all appropriate consultants to ensure a consistent pedigree of expertise in all individual remits. All assessments are subsequently independently audited and verified by the business’ technical, quality and risk division.
Testament to the benefit of this innovative approach Comply in One was previously piloted at one of the UK’s leading high street banks which used five services including asbestos, fire, water, property compliance and even fabric condition survey. The result was compliance cost reductions of a fifth, while follow up verification on identified repair works meant that the number of clear reports increased by 30% over a five year period.
This latest launch follows on from the previous introduction of Building in One; Bureau Veritas’ ground breaking cloud based software system that enables businesses to define, plan, schedule and monitor all regulatory compliance, and store documents in a centralised location using one, simple to use platform. The result is a true one-stop-shop for businesses seeking to try and make easier work of the increasingly complex compliance minefield.
Vicky Shah, Retail and Hospitality Lead at Bureau Veritas, comments: “Amid the difficult current landscape, we know from talking to customers that they are already facing many challenges in terms of the turbulent economy, legislative upheaval and tight deadlines. With Comply in One, therefore, our remit is to lessen the compliance burden by enabling a combined approach in order to reduce disruption and, in turn, costs, while helping to ensure consistency of service.
“As demonstrated in our work with one of the UK’s largest banks, this approach can make a huge difference not just in terms of efficiencies but hugely simplifying the entire compliance process – from initial inspection through to verification and ongoing monitoring – for all involved. We really see this approach, particularly when used with our complementary Building in One offer, as a game changer in the compliance sector and would actively encourage all customers to take advantage of this service today.”
Comply in One is currently available in three flexible packages covering health and safety, electrical and fire safety. To find out more about Comply in One or Building in One from Bureau Veritas’ call 0345 600 1828 or visit www.bureauveritas.co.uk
