Contractor safety has risen up the corporate agenda, especially in the construction, oil and gas, transport, and utility sectors. Firms hire hundreds of thousands of contractors for project support every year, in order to save their organization time and money. However, contractors’ recordable incident rates are typically 3-4 times higher than rates for full-time employees when completing the same tasks. The independent research firm Verdantix has identified digital technologies and best practices to improve contractor safety management and still maintain the cost savings for corporate hirers and their organization.
During this webinar, Verdantix will present technological tools and practices to help firms:
- Advance safety performance across their contractors; and
- Enable collaboration amid their internal EHS, operations and procurement teams in pursuit of this goal.
