The suppliers, contractors, and vendors you hire have a large impact on your organization’s success. The risk introduced to your business by any supplier in your supply chain inherently becomes your risk. Today, owners, prime and subcontractors are no longer insulated from one another’s safety liabilities. Employing organizations will be held accountable for the decisions they make on who they hire – including third-party contractors.

How are you managing and mitigating this risk throughout your organization? Many companies are looking to contractor management and prequalification services to assist in this process.

By doing this, they are able to improve their safety performance and reduce the risk to their organization.
