Raising the Bar on Contractor Safety: Beyond Prequalification


2/8/18 12:00 pm to 2/8/18 1:00 pm CST

Event Description

Managing contractor risk is a common challenge faced by organizations across the globe and often a key motive behind establishing a contractor safety program. But all too often, the focus of these programs stops at prequalification, rather than cultivating ongoing safety improvement among contractors. In this webinar, we’ll review the Contractor Safety Compliance Management Maturity Model, focusing on the key drivers at the higher levels of maturity. We’ll discuss how companies with mature contractor safety programs leverage technology, incorporate formal processes such as observation and audit programs, and capture and utilize contractor data to help improve their programs. Learn how a proactive contractor safety program that reaches beyond prequalification to drive continuous improvement fosters safer and more efficient worksites, and helps lower third-party risk.

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • Key aspects of the three drivers of contractor safety program maturity – culture, technology, and data
  • How developing "partnerships in safety" with contractors can help drive ongoing improvement
  • The value organizations have realized from moving beyond prequalification to focus on continuous safety improvement
