Contractor Safety Management (CSM) plays a key role in day-to-day business activities and project execution.

Businesses are required to ensure and verify the safety and occupational health of their employees, vendors and every contractor.

To accomplish this without compromising the company’s economic performance, high-level risk management skills are needed to properly oversee and manage both internal and external conflicts at contractor/vendor interfaces.

Day To Day Challenges

  1. Service outsourcing is a growth market
  2. Every contractor-provided service poses an additional risk
  3. Contractor accident rates are 3 times higher than those of internal employees
    (EKAS 6508)
  4. Liability always remains with the contracting entity

Safety Shortfalls

  • Responsibility for tasks and duties related to services are often ambiguously defined
  • Poor order and project coordination leads to safety deficiencies
  • Clashes at interfaces present additional challenges
  • Communication regarding operating instructions, rules and potential hazards is insufficient and instruction is lacking
  • In many cases, risk assessments reveal deficiencies, safety statements have gaps and the workforce is not adequately trained
  • Contractors are insufficiently vetted for quality and expertise and these checks are not thoroughly documented
  • Companies frequently lack in-house resources with the expertise required for performing appropriate safety checks and controls
  • End-of-contract inspections are incomplete, final appraisals are skipped and no feedback process is implemented
