CHAS launches plant management solution
Digital fleet-management service offers real-time monitoring and enhanced visibility of plant and machinery
CHAS, specialists in supply chain risk management, have launched a new plant and equipment management tool that offers real-time tracking and enhanced fleet visibility; helping machine operators/owners to reduce downtime, improve safety, simplify inspection/maintenance and ensure regulatory compliance with requirements, including non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) emissions standards.
Available via the CHAS portal, CHAS Plant provides contractors with a single view of all the plant and machinery they own and manage, including a comprehensive record of all maintenance, insurance, and operator checks for each item of plant creating an instantly available audit trail.
CHAS Plant allows easy asset workflow management, thanks to a number of useful tools such as the provision of automatic alerts when services are approaching and due.
Tasks can be delegated to relevant staff who are automatically notified by CHAS Plant. Tasks are also created automatically by checklist actions so that when an operator finds a problem, all the right people within an organization are notified and contractors can operate proactively for improved safety, greater efficiency and reduced downtime.
Different security and user access levels can be set so that regulators, rental customers and party auditors can access records whenever necessary. Contractors subjected to the stricter NRMM emission standards in Greater London can, therefore, be rest assured that they will be able to instantly access relevant records in the event of a GLA inspection.
‘Traditionally, many contractors have grappled with manual or disparate electronic systems to keep track of plant and equipment which has made auditing challenging and carried with it the anxiety of finding incomplete or inaccurate records,’ said Ian McKinnon, managing director of CHAS.
‘CHAS Plant transforms this process enabling anyone to access up-to-date and comprehensive records in an instant while revolutionizing maintenance and workflow. The launch of CHAS Plant supports our ongoing mission to drive efficiency in supply chain risk management and we are delighted to add it to our growing range of supply chain risk management solutions.’
Since 1997, CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) has been helping to improve health and safety standards across the UK and safeguard organisations from risk.
The organization works in partnership with leading industry and independent bodies to provide clients and contractors alike with a single solution for accreditation, risk assessment, supply chain management and industry training.
