National Safety Council Study: Making the Case for Contractor Management

Examining the Safety Benefits of Third-Party Management

This webinar took place on

Thursday March 22, 2018

2:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM MT

The issue of managing contractor EHS performance is an ongoing concern among organizations of all industries. Contract workers are a vulnerable population. Of the 4,836 fatal work injuries in the United States in 2015, 17% were to contracted workers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Many contractors perform non-routine work at sites that are not directly supervised by an EHS manager, or any manager at all.

The National Safety Council conducted an independent study, Making the Case for Contractor Management: Examining the Safety Benefits of Third-Party Management, with data supplied by BROWZ, LLC. This study examines the impact of contractor management programs – specifically prequalification – on the safety of contractors in the BROWZ database.

Join the National Safety Council and Campbell Institute member, BROWZ for a presentation of this report and its findings. This webinar will also include a presentation of the five crucial steps in the contractor lifecycle as compiled from a Campbell Institute study of over 14 industry-leading organizations.

Key Topics

  • Does the pre-qualification process enable contractors to become better and safer overall?
  • How does third-party pre-qualification companies add rigor to the process?
  • What are the established best practices in contractor management?
  • What are the 5 crucial steps in the contractor prequalification lifecycle?
