Introducing the contractor compliance platform for short line railroads

Are you prepared to manage your contractor compliance with the new Federal Railroad Regulation (FRA) Part 219? Are you prepared to be compliant with the June 12, 2017 deadline?

BROWZ can help with a new solution, BROWZ Shortline Connection. 

BROWZ is providing contractor compliance management for most of the Class I railroads and several short line holding companies. BROWZ has now created a compliance platform, ShortLine connection, configured specifically for shortline railroads or holding companies to help manage contractor compliance with the new FRA 219 regulations.

ShortLine Connection simplifies the process of managing Regulated Service contractors and provides visibility to their FRA 219 compliance information.

Creating a Four-Quarter Plan for Managing Risk & Safety

5 Best Practices for Creating a Contractor Safety Management Program

This webinar takes place on

Wednesday February 20, 2019

1:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM MT

Most successful companies have a long-term vision and an expectation of where they want to be and how they will get there. As a result, 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 that previously were kept in-house. Hiring contractors presents companies with both benefits 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.
