Contractor compliance management through companies like ISNetworld®, Avetta®, and Veriforce® has become commonplace in a variety of industries. These industries range from oil and gas to construction and even carpeting suppliers. Do you think contractor compliance management can be beneficial to your company and not just to the client? I can give you four reasons why it can be.
Provide Safety Information and Good Scores with Clients
The main goal of the contractor compliance sites is for companies to provide their safety statistics and efforts to prevent injuries and illnesses. On these sites, companies are graded based on their safety compliance in addition to other requirements. If a company has a record of safety incidents, it will be at the bottom of the list when it comes to winning jobs or projects. For safety-minded clients, contractors that put safety at the bottom of the priority list just won’t cut it anymore. In addition to doing a good job, contractors must also prove their company is doing all they can to keep their employees safe. No one wants to be on the news because of a major incident on their site, even if it wasn’t caused by their own employees. Maintaining a good grade on the contractor compliance sites will put your company ahead of the rest to win jobs.
Drive Safe Behavior
Continuing to win projects because your company is focused on safety also helps drive safe behaviors in employees. Everyone wants to go home safely each day. Employees benefitting from increased revenue in addition to stellar safety statistics are more inclined to keep safety in mind.
In addition to general safety statistics, the contractor compliance sites can help track and share documentation. This provides a convenient way to communicate with clients in an organized manner. Clients require documentation such as certificates of insurance, incident information, and hiring client-specific information to be uploaded. Some of this documentation expires, so tracking it this way helps to keep up with reminders.
Safety in General
Overall, the safety of employees and their lives is the biggest benefit. Like I said, everyone wants to go home safely at the end of the day. Focusing on the benefits of contractor compliance management can be a step in improving safety.
