Today Sewell Group is launching a new contractor and workforce compliance portal. ‘Sitepass’ will ensure all site and maintenance personnel are part of a high quality, high performing, and above all, safe delivery team.
The web based system allows subcontractors working across the construction and facilities management business areas to register remotely at anytime, free of charge and equally for Sewell staff to approve applications online.
Sitepass also allows subcontractors to record and manage all required business information in a process that is central and efficient. In order for the supply chain to continue to be considered for work with Sewell, all businesses will need to register their company as a member of Sitepass.
Commenting on the new system Steve Gibson, Director said:
“Many of our subcontractors work across different business areas within Sewell Group, so Sitepass will prevent duplication and streamline the subcontractor appointment process, for them and for us.”
“We’ve transferred from a traditional system that worked and has served us well, to an extremely efficient, PAS91 compliant, transparent method of verification, which is free to our supply chain.”
Registration and approval is compulsory and required by the end of July 2014, failure to do so will exclude the organisation from further work opportunities with Sewell thereafter. If organisations are approved on Construction Line, only part registration is necessary.
