In the world of contractor management and compliance, two systems stand out: Verature and Alcumus SafeContractor. While both are designed to ensure that contractors and subcontractors meet compliance standards, they differ in key ways. So, let’s take a closer look at what each system has to offer your company.
Verature is an internal system that is used by in-house teams to vet contractors and subcontractors. It offers a comprehensive review workflow that enables clients to manage the entire contractor management process, from vetting to job allocation, inductions, assessment, RAMS and competencies and permit issues and audit.. Verature covers a broad scope and is customised to meet the specific compliance requirements of the organisation.
On the other hand, SafeContractor is an external scheme that covers contractor prequalification. It provides accreditation to contractors, which enables them to prove their compliance status to prospective clients. The scheme covers health and safety, prequalification documents, ISO, insurance, accident/incident records, and training matrix. It is a hands-off approach that is suited to low-risk sites that don’t require a full contractor management cycle.
One key difference between Verature and SafeContractor is that Verature is paid for by the client to deliver their organisational contractor management and compliance requirements. This makes it ideal for clients who have long-standing relationships with contractors who may not be able to afford costly fees for membership to SafeContractor or other similar schemes. In contrast, SafeContractor accreditation is purchased by the contractor company, making it a valuable and appreciated string to the bow of any prospective contractor.
Verature is suited to multi-location or multi-site clients, especially those with high-risk areas and complex contractor management processes that require maintaining control and peace of mind. It offers a more hands-on approach to contractor management, which can be customised to meet the unique needs of the organisation. In contrast, SafeContractor is more suited to low-risk sites that require a less hands-on approach.
In conclusion, both Verature and SafeContractor are valuable tools for managing contractors and subcontractors, but they differ in their approach and suitability for different organisations. Clients should carefully consider their needs and compliance requirements before choosing between the two systems.
