How to evaluate the safety performance of contractors

Using leading and lagging indicators

Joint responsibility is the new normal for managing safety between employers and the contractors they hire. Any company or staffing agency workers that come on your site is now part of your risk profile. How do you manage this risk and desire for contractor continuous process improvement?

Progressive companies know they cannot limit their supply chain safety assessment focus to compliance alone. Contractors and suppliers that are compliant on paper still experience employee injury, leadership challenges, production errors and near miss events. Thought-leading organizations such as the National Safety Council are challenging industry to ‘Move the Curve’, and go beyond compliance – to look deeper into safety management systems and company safety culture.

View the webinar recording below which discusses using both lagging and leading indicators to evaluate the safety performance of contractors. This webinar also discusses how to track a contractor’s safety statistics and OSHA/MSHA violations, auditing safety programs, and also performing safety management systems assessments.

Key Topics

  • Why evaluate safety performance of contractors
  • What information to look at to track safety
  • How to interpret the safety data
  • How to manage the data

5 Best Practices for Creating a Contractor Safety Management Program

This webinar takes place on

Thursday January 17, 2019

2:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM MT

Most successful companies have a long-term vision and expectation of where they want to be and how to get there. Because of this, each new business year inevitably brings with it corporate resolutions and company goals that will pave the way for the months ahead.
 
Such goals often include increasing sales, opening new locations, and offering new and improved products and services. To manage costs and streamline operations, many organizations are turning to contractors to supply them with goods and services they previously kept in-house. Hiring contractors presents companies with both benefit and areas of potential risk that must be addressed throughout the process.
 
This presentation will examine best practice methods in contractor management, outlined by the Campbell Institute, a division of the National Safety Council, and review the steps that companies should be taking now and throughout the year to establish a safe and conscientious plan for managing the contractors they work with.

Topics Include:

  • Research findings on contractor management best practices
  • Incorporating leading and lagging risk indicators
  • Establishing more effective partnerships with contractors and suppliers
  • Working with internal teams to achieve a common goal
