DM group: Pushing the boundaries of Facility Management and unleashing new opportunities in the service and infra industry.
Facilities management refers to the processes used to maintain and manage the facilities used by an organization during the day to day running’s of the business. Over the last few years more businesses have been starting to realize just how important effective facilities management can be for their profit margins. Facilities management teams are made up of professionals qualified in monitoring, maintaining, analysing, repairing, and maintaining all facilities used to build and run a business including buildings such as warehouses and office blocks, staff, and human resources.
A facilities management team should also be active in devising and adjusting facilities management strategies to improve cost cutting and increase employee productivity. A growing organization attracts a burgeoning list of resources to manage, including extra staff, HR, buildings, infrastructure, and equipment. The management team not only need to maintain the facilities, they also need to ensure all areas are compliant with health and safety regulations. Few of the responsibilities a facilities management team focuses on to ensure smooth business operations are Risk assessment, Waste management and disposal, Access for disabled employees and members of the public, ensure compliance with all health and safety regulations, Strategic planning, Controlling the distribution and use of hazardous substances Facilities management allows a business to keep their finger on the pulse and properly co-ordinate timely maintenance of assets to ensure longer usability and reduce the total cost of ownership.
A business lacking the ability to effectively manage its facilities risks falling out of regulatory compliance, and may also find itself facing expensive repair bills, rather than relatively minor maintenance costs. There is also the danger mismanaged equipment can pose to both employees and the public. The facilities management team is an essential component of any business which can help improve cash flow and reduce waste. Small businesses lacking the resources to have a team on staff will find many affordable options
