Companies across virtually every industry are increasingly dependent on contractors and temporary workers to maintain operational flexibility and keep labor costs low. Finding the right contractor or temporary employee provider can be tough, and many companies spend big bucks on third-party contractor qualification services to ensure they’re bringing reputable, safe, and qualified companies into their workplace.
But simply identifying and selecting a qualified contractor or staffing agency is only the beginning. Most third-party contractor qualification services focus narrowly on qualification at the company level and offer limited capabilities, if any, when it comes to verifying individual worker qualifications, skills, training, and safe work performance. Now consider the additional tasks required for managing contractor safety, including documenting method statements and risk assessments, performing contractor onboarding and site-specific training, issuing permits, and managing site access. With contractors and temporary workers often employed in high-hazard jobs and at statistically elevated risk for work-related injury and illness, it’s critical to understand that contractor management is much, much more than just contractor qualification. It requires a comprehensive Control of Work process to keep all workers safe.
This 60-minute webinar will introduce you to contractor qualification best practices and go beyond to illustrate how contractor qualification contributes to a complete Control of Work process that ensures contractor safety from end to end. You’ll also get a first-hand look at how dedicated Control of Work software systems streamline the hand-off between contractor qualification and subsequent steps in the Control of Work process to reduce administrative burdens while providing the architecture for a Control of Work process that maximizes workplace safety for all workers.
Topics covered will include:
- Contractor provider/temporary employer pre-qualification best practices to drive the speed and effectiveness of the selection process.
- The importance of contractor/temporary worker evaluation and verification processes to ensure safety and certification at the individual worker level.
- How contractor qualification integrates with other Control of Work process elements (risk assessment, training, onboarding, permit to work, site access) to support EHS performance.
