FM Update Reset innovation makes it even easier to manage contractors

Reset, one of the UK’s leading competence checking and contractor management systems, has released its Reset Access Mobile solution. Each Reset Access Mobile terminal is fully self-contained and, incorporating contactless technology, requires no external data or power. Revealed at the IHEEM (Healthcare Estates

Annual Conference) in October, the Reset Access Mobile terminal is ideal for use in smaller buildings and dispersed estates which may be visited less frequently or lack mains electricity. It enables contractors to log their arrivals,

activities and departures at remotes estates premises, so clients can fulfil their duty in law which requires them to ensure the contractors they allow onto their sites are competent to work safely. Reset’s Managing Director Gary Duce

says: “This is the latest technological development designed to make it even easier for organisations to manage contractors and monitor their activities at smaller premises and remote sites. Using Reset

can substantially reduce costs for clients by eliminating the need to manually collect and maintain information from contractors.” Through Reset’s Virtual Card app, placing

their smartphone close to a Reset’s Access Mobile terminal allows a contractor to: • Log their arrival on site and enter what they will be doing.

• State where they will be working and for whom.

• On completion, log off site. It really is that simple!

Reset’s services are used UK-wide by

the public and private sectors – in the NHS, Education, housing, local government, construction and facilities management. Clients can use Reset to verify

contractors are competent and qualified to work on site, in compliance with health and safety legislation and Construction (Design and Management) Regulations – CDM 2015. Gary Duce continues: “All clients and

organisations engaging contractors have a legal and moral duty to ensure that they are competent to carry out their duties safely, before setting them to work. Our technology not only helps organisations to do this quickly and easily, but also keeps readily accessible records to provide clear evidence of compliance.” For more, please contact the Reset
