2019 Company and Supplier Checklists now available

Further to the changes made to the Site Registration Checklist that the Scheme announced recently, the 2019 Checklists for Company and Supplier Registration are now available.

All of the changes that were outlined by the Scheme for the Site Registration Checklist apply equally to both the new Supplier Checklist and the Company Checklist (turnover over £3.5m), read about those updates here. Click the links below to view both of these new Checklists.

There are two further Company Registration Checklists for companies with a turnover below £250k and between £250k and £3.5m which have also been updated. There are some changes detailed below that apply to both of these and also specific changes for each highlighted.

The brief description boxes have been amended slightly to make it clearer what needs to be considered and captured.

A new ‘constraints’ box has been added to prompt discussion between the company contact and Monitor on any perceived constraints that restrict the site’s ability to address certain areas of the Checklist.

Companies should consider any constraints before the visit and highlight these to the Monitor at the start of the meeting. These can then be discussed to establish how the company has tackled the constraints, how alternative solutions have been explored and how these might impact upon the Scheme’s expectations.

Constraints might be imposed by the client, landlord, building owner, local authority or other controlling organisation. However, please note that the client is considered to be part of the project and would therefore be expected to be a considerate constructor, and support the contractor appropriately in achieving the Scheme’s requirements.

The Scheme has also added a new question asking ‘How many companies within the supply chain are registered with the Scheme?’ This has been added to capture data for records and perhaps encourage more companies to ask the question of their supply chain.

Changes to Company Checklist (turnover between £250k and £3.5m)

Appearance

  • Question 1.1 checklist prompt ‘First impressions’ has changed to ‘initial impressions’ as this is something different to the Scheme’s campaign of the same name.
  • ‘First Impressions campaign’ has been added as a prompt to question 1.7 to encourage sites to review the campaign hosted on the Scheme’s Best Practice Hub, and take appropriate actions with reference to the information available and how the company could address the four modules: exterior signage, career opportunities, selling the project, promoting performance.

Community

  • ‘Traffic Management arrangements’ has been added as a prompt to question 2.2.
  • Question 2.3 now reads ‘Is the site actively promoting the benefits of registration with the Scheme?’  New prompts encourage promotion to clients, consultants and the supply chain.

Environment

  • ‘Plastics and packaging’ added as a prompt to question 3.7 to encourage a reduction in the use of single use plastics by companies.

Safety

  • ‘MIU’ has been added as a prompt to question 4.1 as Minor Injuries Units are often more appropriate.
