Wednesday October 19, 2016

Driven by global and regional economic development, strategic management of the supply chain continues gaining attention as a contributor to competitive advantage. In today’s marketplace, competition has moved from “among organizations” to “between supply chains”. As companies increase their dependence on their suppliers so does their risk exposure. As a result, supplier selection and management are a strategic necessity for organizations, and prequalification programs have become a cornerstone of supply chain risk management.

What you will learn:

  • How supplier selection and monitoring contributes to corporate risk management
  • How prequalification impacts the firm’s competitive advantage
  • Common pitfalls of supplier prequalification and monitoring programs
  • How to avoid common program failures

How to Evaluate the Safety Performance of Contractors Using Lagging & Leading Indicators

This webinar takes place on

Thursday October 11, 2018

1:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM MT
FULL WEBINAR INFORMATION

Joint responsibility is the new normal for managing safety between employers and the contractors they hire. Any contractor, subcontractor, or vendor that comes 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.

Join BROWZ for a webinar discussing using both lagging and leading indicators to evaluate the safety performance of contractors. We will be discussing 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
  • Auditing safety programs and safety manuals
  • Performing safety management system assessments
