Event Description

Though it might seem cost-effective in the beginning, hiring the wrong contractors could turn out to be extremely expensive in the long run.

Without proper screening of contractors, you could be hiring unqualified, uninsured and unsafe workers. This may lead to an accident occurring at the worksite, which could lead to a string of problems and uncertain legal and economic consequences.

Join us for a live webinar on investing in contractor qualification and management to learn more about:

  • Assessing the economic value of contractor qualification and management solution
  • Business conditions that make contractor qualification an imperative for many businesses, including the expected costs associated
  • Potential direct and indirect costs of “doing nothing”
  • How to outsource contractor qualification to a vendor
