The Health and Safety Working Party of the FMA have developed a simple method for member organisations to share Good Practice in the Facilities Management. The objective is not to provide an exhaustive list of initiatives but to provide member organisations a vehicle to demonstrate their own Good Practice initiatives. Thus building a body of initiatives that member organisations may have access together with contact information with a view to sharing and promoting Good Practice with the Facilities Management industry and not reinventing whehels at every turn.

In practice member organisations present their Good Practice submissions to the FMA Safety Working Party. The FMA Safety Working Party will then assess and endorse, if appropriate, and then post on the FMA website as an example of Good Practice with relevant contact information. The submission may include additional information or presentation material to the Good Practice Summary sheet posted on the website.

The first two examples of this are:

  • Interserve –  Behavioural Safety imitative called  ”CATS” (see download document below)
  • OCS’s Sustainable Work Scheduling Tool (see download document below)
  • Mitie – The development of a positive safety culture to engage all staff
