Effective management of Occupational Health and Safety risk relies upon using contractors who are aligned with your HSE goals. Identifying contractors who meet minimum HSE expectations, and avoiding those that do not, is a key part of contractor management. With HSE performance, liabilities, insurance coverage, impact on operations, reputation and many other considerations dependent upon contractor performance, contractor safety is just good business. Campbell Institute has published a research report, based on best practice collections from its 14 member firms, outlining the stages of the contractor life cycle, from the initial vetting and prequalification stage to a final post-job evaluation.

Join us to learn from a 100 billion dollar revenue organization, that leverages contractors to run most of its operations, how it manages the full contractor life cycle management process from a safety standpoint. How do you differentiate contractors that operate safely from those that don’t? These decisions can have direct impact on your organization’s safety performance, reputation and bottom line, potentially adding risk to your operations.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • A holistic approach to high-risk contractor management
  • Contractor self-assessment via questionnaires to collect, process information and identify trends that drive contracting decisions
  • Onsite assessments to verify performance, and
  • Use of analytics to manage the global process
