Tesco Invests in Risk Management Technology for a Safer Workplace

Tesco Invests in Risk Management Technology for a Safer Workplace
25 January 2022

Tesco is to centralise its workplace risks and hazards data to create a safer workplace for its staff.

The global retailer has joined forces with Alcumus to streamline its risk management processes across Environmental, Health, Safety and Quality Management (EHSQ),  investing in an integrated safety risk mapping system.

Alcumus currently works with 46 per cent of the FTSE 100 and 45,000 clients globally.


Risk Trend Analysis in Retail


Alcumus will provide Tesco with a platform that will bring together operational and risk management information, processes and workflows, allowing the business to analyse risk trends globally.

Beyond addressing immediate business requirements, it is hoped that Alcumus’ software will help bolster Tesco’s operational efficiency and strengthen the accuracy of data collection across all its departments worldwide.

Managing and connecting data is an increasing priority for multinational organisations, particularly when it comes to reducing and eliminating workplace risks and hazards.




For companies with a global footprint, this process of managing and collecting business-critical data is particularly onerous and time-consuming given the breadth and scale of their business operations.

Helen Jones, Chief Operating Officer, Enterprise, Alcumus said: “We are thrilled to start a new and exciting journey with one of the world’s leading multinational retailers, providing the company with the service and technology that will help keep its colleagues and customers safe, now and in the future."
