Organizations use contractors to save costs and streamline operations. It is estimated that contract workers make up approximately one third of our workforce and that proportion is expected to grow. Government, stakeholders and regulatory bodies are placing increasing pressure on organizations to ensure that contractors are compliant. Contractors themselves, are facing harsher guidelines to meet obligations or risk losing key contracts.
Without an effective contractor management system, organizations risk financial penalties, workplace accidents, environmental disasters and interruption to vital production. Companies that outsource work need to engage a system that manages health & safety compliance, insurance obligations, licensing, permits, certification, training and potentially thousands of documents. Smart companies minimize corporate risk by implementing an effective contractor management system.
Contractor management software enables contractors to manage their own compliance data. The onus or liability lies with the contractor. An easy access web based system prompts the contractor to manage their own data so that senior management receive email notifications whenever there are compliance, insurance or training issues. The system may also interface with training management software for further skill management.
An effective system will manage compliance in all areas including inductions, permits, policy checklists and procedures for safe work environments. The system should manage expirations and re-certifications for insurance, licenses and training. Organizations and contractors that manage this data successfully have fewer incidents and reduce financial risk.
