Event Description

Results of the H1 2017 Contractor Safety Audits

Ensuring safety on the worksite is a top concern for organizations, as well as for the contractors that work for them. Failure to operate a safe work environment can lead to catastrophic results – preventable injuries and/or deaths, damage to company reputation, financial loss and much more. Mature safety programs, which include desktop and field audits, can prevent worker injuries, help to protect company reputation, support compliance with government regulations and avoid unnecessary loss. In this webinar, learn about the results of the contractor desktop safety audits performed by Veriforce in the first half of 2017, which review contractors’ written safety program documentation to measure how effectively their HSE policies and procedures have been implemented.

Attendees will also learn more about:

  • The top 5 areas of deficiencies from the H1 2017 biannual audit report and how they compare to the 2016 results
  • Tips on how organizations can work with contractors to improve safety performance
  • How technology can support a proactive and efficient safety compliance management program
