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
