Report of the Director of the Built Environment.
The Committee received the report of the Director of the Built Environment on the Department of the Built Environment Risk Management – Periodic Report.
In September 2019, it was reported to the Committee that some employees and contractors who require to take an online training scheme had been missed, thus the pervious compliance report had been inaccurate. They had now been identified. The Committee was assured that the Department is working towards reducing the risk level back to Amber.
A Member sought assurance that such incidents of inaccuracies will not be repeated in the future. The Committee was told that at present the City uses a number of systems, which are not always synchronized. From the lessons learnt, the City is now working on a piece of work to ensure a more joined up system with greater coordination.
Members were told that at present there is not a single database for all those who are on the City Payroll, contractors, agencies and volunteers, thus resulting in inaccuracies or “the missing employees”. A Member suggested this be raised with the Establishment Committee.
RESOLVED – Members noted the report and the actions taken in the Department of the Built Environment to monitor and manage effectively risks arising from the Department’s operations
